Okay I think I made some progress. However I suspect there 'may' be a
problem with the git feed itself?
The following command seems to export a branch to a directory fine.
git archive origin/0.8.x | (cd /home/bedlore/git_feeds/test/ && tar -xvf -)
however after running "cmake ." then make everything appears to have
compiled correctly expect there is no dvswitch binary in src?
Also oddly there is information on 0.9 in the Changelog which I wouldn't
expect to see in the 0.8 branch.
I am fast running out of time and have to leave in a couple of hours.
Any chance someone can simply email me copy of the latest 0.8 brach with
Ben's commits from last night please!
