An good old access permission problem on the web server but I won't have
time to sort it out now.
Until then you can use gitcvs to access the repositories:
cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/pub/scm/linux.git co -d
linux-malta -P <branch>
Where <branch> is one of linux-2.0, linux-2.2, linux-2.4, MaltaRef_2_4,
MaltaRef_2_6 and master - if your firewall allows port 2401 that is ...
But why are you still using the linux-malta repository? Since ~ 5 months
it is no longer being updated and has effectivly been replaced with
linux.git repository. Of this repository there are also snapshots of all
tagged versions available.
