In WR Linux 6 RCPL 13 it's not possible to clone the Xilinx u-boot git repo, see example below: 

$ git clone 
Cloning into ''... 
warning: remote HEAD refers to nonexistent ref, unable to checkout. 

Reproduced on various WRL6 RCPL's - 11, 12, 13

But can clone from a build Git repo:

$ git clone /ssd/cslabber/epb_wrlinux_600.7/build/build_epb2_epb/packages/git2/
Cloning into ''...

so if I clone from a 'build' then it's OK
but not from Product
I think it should be OK from Product
The folders etc looks similar - ie a Git bare repo
and during a build should clone from these Product repos

I can only guess that during bitbake build the way it clones and checks out is somehow different.

But still, how is one supposed to then be able to look at some WRL product package? It would be nice to simply clone from these product Git's to see the source, available tags etc. Or else you need to at least 'configure' or build first which seems a bit too much effort.
