The downloaded files are cached in local directories 'sources' and 
'patches'. The MD5 hashes make sure we have valid files in those 
directories. Downloading will continue from the last failed or missing 
download. Access to repositories is different because they are 
interactive so you need access to pass that point. There is nothing I 
can do about that.

I am working on tickets to release the RSB and RTEMS Tools and have 
pushed some changes with more to come. The outcome of this will go a 
long way to help here. The ftp area on ftp.rtems.org has a 
releases/4.11/4.11.0-rc1 staging area I am using for testing (if you 
take a look please read the README.txt). I will be adding a 'sources' 
directory there which is the result of the RSB command below for 
'4.11/rtems-all'. It will contain all sources and patches. A released 
RSB will look here for a download before heading to the home site of a 
package. As a result of this I need to conditionally support any repo 
accesses based on the RSB being released in the configuration files. I 
will have to create equivalent tar files. This means there is now a 
requirement on the RSB that repo access is only for development and 
releases need to have tar file support.

Sambeet's thread on this topic is timely because it confirms my 
suspicion we need file level access. It also brings back to the 
foreground the issue of a ChangeLog or dump of the git log being placed 
in a release. Do we need this? I have seen schools block

You can download with:

  $ ../source-builder/sb-set-builder --dry-run --with-download \
                         --without-error-report 4.12/rtems-sparc

(Note --without-error-report is coming)

then copy the 'sources' and 'patches' directories.

You will still need access to git repo's because the commands often do a 
clean and pull because the RSB has to assume the repo needs updating 
before using.
