           15  +<p>In an ideal world this whole <b><font color="#ff0000">~40GiB</font></b>
           16  +Fossil repository could be cloned, but in practice the cloning of this
           17  +repository accesses the SQLite database of this Fossil repository's online
           18  +instance and although the SQLite is able to hold huge volumes of data, it does
           19  +not withstand the number of threads that get started by web spiders and cloners
           20  +all at once. The temporary database locking causes an error during the cloning
           21  +and therefore the way to get a copy of this Fossil repository MIGHT BE to copy
           22  +a slightly modified version of it from&nbsp;</p>

           30  +log in to the online version.</p>

    15     37   <p>All of the development deliverables can be downloaded by cloning this Fossil
    16     38   repository. <font color="#ff0000">The cloning can take hours and it requires at
    17     39   least 40GiB of HDD space.</font> The recommended way to <b>anonymously clone</b>
    18     40   the Silktorrent Fossil repository is to run the following Bash line:</p>
    19     41   <pre>    mkdir -p ./tmp_; SQLITE_TMPDIR=`pwd`/tmp_ time nice -n18 fossil clone --unversioned &nbsp;  ./silktorrent.fossilrepository</pre>
