What I wonder is what's the correct workflow. Your script clones ever
pkg-multimedia git repository. Do you have numbers how much disk space
this takes? How much data needs to be transferred, and how long does git
need for that?
Just a brainfart, but perhaps this functionality can be implemented
better in gbp-clone by adding a concept of group-cloneing?
BTW, the list of repos can be probably generated by a cronjob, that way
also non-team members can test and use your script.
