[App_rpt-users] Using SVN copy of Asterisk on RaspberryPi (and "usb.h")

You're absolutely right, or I would've thought so. I also understand,
this is a fast moving target, so things may not be in line with each
other - but literally crippling the platform? The first thing someone
is going to want to do is compile a kernel, or so I would've thought.
It *is* a hackers platform, after all.

I've got access to a git repo, but I just want to clone the "kernel"
directory, since I'm on a download limited 3G connection, and I've
probably burned at least a quarter of it downloading various things
already, I'm conscious of my download limit. And the whole git looked
like over 200Meg. Plus I only have an 8GB microSD card in the Pi, ok,
I might have 3GB up my sleeve, but even thats not enough for my
paranoid self.

Additionally, Jim, I looked at the RTCMs and showed my friend Andrew.
Now I've resolved to get two early next year, along with some GPS
clocks and the like, and set up a voting system with the base stations
800m apart connected by long shot wifi. The wifi works, tested it
before I pulled it down. I know a vote over 800m is pitiful, but I
have unfettered access to both properties (ones mine, the others my

Of course, it'll be a "work in progress" there for a while, and I
won't be able to get my slate PC until April... but my Macbook Air is
still going strong - I'm sure I told you all I got IAXRpt working
under WiNE with sound... thats pretty nifty, I was never much more
glad to hear an error tone in my life!

Thanks again guys - lets see if the RPi people come to the party...
I've posed my question on the forums of course. If anyone here has
some tips on cloning a single directory out of a git repo though, I'm
all ears... ^.~

So, like, if you ask for the source code from which a program is compiled, you should be able to easily get it without anyone giving you any trouble? OK, so if they don't include it in the main distro for space consideration reasons, is it not a violation of the license for it to not be freely available somewhere? Doesn't just mean the unmodified source, but the source for any modifications that were made, also falling under the GPL. No?
