How to clone a project from Github to work on it

This works for other people's repositories also, where you have been given access and when you have your public key.

For instance:

git clone

To take a copy of the Drupal project mirrored on github - - and bring it into your local environment for some good tire-kicking and contrib module development, but not to contribute changes back, you can get a copy of the repository using the public git:// (as opposed to git@) prefix:

git clone git:// 7rdf
