The HACKING file tells me that I should do:
git clone git://git.freedesktop.org/dbus/dbus
but this doesn't work:
Cloning into 'dbus'...
fatal: remote error: access denied or repository not exported: /dbus/dbus

HACKING: Update git URIs to sync up with cgit.freedesktop.org
git.freedesktop.org no longer offers anonymous checkouts; that facility
moved to anongit.freedesktop.org.
Already applied (it didn't seem worth doing the usual review procedure for this).
Thanks for reporting, fixed in git. The corrected HACKING file will be in the 1.10.20 and 1.11.14 releases.
