I created a Tools Lab account on 1st may which was approved by Tim Landscheidt.
I've created a tool (catimages) for my GSoC project and was trying to set up pywikibot for a test bed. When I try to clone pywikibot or mediawiki-core I find that the cloning hangs at "Cloning into 'mw-core'..." for a lot of time and then the cloning begins at ~10-20 KBps.
To get the cloning started sometimes it's taken 2 hrs, other times 30 mins. And sometimes the cloning again hangs at some percentage.
Is that an expected ? I found it quite difficult to clone pywikibot, had to restart cloning 3-4 times and wait for ~1-2 hrs each time. Before I got 1 successful attempt.
