      Description

      KSK reported that the git package built by EUPS doesn't have https support:

      git clone http://dev.lsstcorp.org/git/LSST/afw.git afw
      Cloning into 'afw'...
      fatal: Unable to find remote helper for 'http'
      [krughoff@magneto ~/lsststack]$ git version
      git version 1.8.5.2

      This is most likely due to:

      http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8329485/git-clone-fatal-unable-to-find-remote-helper-for-https

      After some discussion on HipChat, a proposed course of action was to package curl and add it as a dependency of EUPS-distributed git.

          A temporary workaround is for the user to have curl development libraries installed (e.g., curl-devel on RHEL).

          Joshua Hoblitt I assume this is no longer a problem. We clone with https all the time now.
