alternative source for installing git. brew install git; kernel.org Down for maintenance
i just noticed that kernel.org is Down for maintenance. is there a different formula which uses a different mirror ? or could i add a different source (like bundler?) to homebrew?
thx for help!
Quick workaround: Perform brew edit git
And also put
Save and after that type brew install git.
When Linus is done with kernelorg's maintenance, you can revert all these changes.
UPDATE: Added mirror for htmldocs as well. Credits to Tadashi Shigeoka who found the url.
UPDATE: Recent homebrew revision contains mirrors, so that you don't need to use this hack.
Updated for 2015: The solution is much simpler asssuming you have ruby.

ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
brew install git

I found out that freesbie.net was down when trying to install the manpages but you can use
Had an issue with git-htmldocs url, kept getting connection reset by peer.

So just downloaded git-htmldocs-18.104.22.168.tar.bz2 from here and moved it into the directory.
the HTML docs are available here:
Git source is also mirrored on github (I forget where off the top of my head, but a quick search will find it)
