Hello Michael,

kdesvn-build doesn't seem to able to handle it currently. I removed my
existing qt-copy source directory and used the module configuration
you mentioned above, but it fails with the following output:

    Script started processing at Tue Sep 29 21:19:06 2009
    <<<  Build Process  >>>
    Building qt-copy (1/1)
            Waiting for source code update.
    Error updating qt-copy, removing from list of packages to build.
     > Can't checkout qt-copy: No such file or directory at
/home/parker/kde-devel/install/bin/kdesvn-build line 1944.

            Unable to update qt-copy, build canceled.

    <<<  Build Done  >>>

The error.log contains the following:

    # kdesvn-build running: 'git' 'clone' '--'
    Initialized empty Git repository in
    fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
    fatal: early EOF
    fatal: index-pack failed

Cloning manually seems to work, though. Hope this is useful to you.
