Download MITK-Data from git repository instead of tarball
Closed, WontfixPublic


Using a git repository in the externalproject command is more convenient and space efficient.

This leads to errors during superbuild. It seems the DKFZ proxy does not like the size of our repository. Can be reproduced by:

git clone
Cloning into 'mitk-data'...
error: RPC failed; HTTP 502 curl 22 The requested URL returned error: 502 Proxy Error
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

Will convert back to tarball.

I cannot reproduce this error on windows or linux.
have you tried to increase the postbuffer size in git?
git config --global http.postBuffer 524288000

as described here:

We could also just clean the mitk-data repository by removing the pre-2014 history. This would not be a problem for legacy users since the old tarballs are still there.

@kolbch It fails on my Windows machine at work, too, but it hasn't a few days ago. It's a DKFZ proxy issue. You tried from home I guess, as it works from home for me as well?

edit: Oops, didn't work from home either, early EOF.

@kolbch I don't think cleaning the history would do. We also tried a shallow copy with depth 1 and that did not work either.
