I want to use all services from devstack, but only cinder from a private depo. So I modified the stackrc file herein:


The problem is: during clone in, it is asking for username. I am giving the user-name. Then it is hanging forever. The password prompt is not coming.

2015-03-09 18:09:32.356 | + timeout=0
2015-03-09 18:09:32.356 | + timeout -s SIGINT 0 git clone /opt/stack/cinder
2015-03-09 18:09:32.359 | Cloning into '/opt/stack/cinder'...
Username for '': my-user-name
.......... hangs ..........

Any idea how to tackle this would be of great help.

My suspicion would be a connectivity issue between you and github. Can you connect to git directly outside the script - ie, does the 'git clone' work manually? Can you ping / connect to it on port 443?

Yeah! the normal thing works (I mean the manual stuff). What else should I test?
