I would love to download (or, preferably, clone via git) the entire drupal contrib repository (6 for now, but 7 also). That way I can do cool stuff like search the repository via grep for hooks, examples, and implementations that I can reflect upon, improve, copy or steal. Is this possible? Is there a native way to do this via drupal.org or github.com/drupal? Do you have a current-ish copy of said repository. Please. Don't be greedy.
This project provides one way to help solve the issue Provide a way to download the entire git codebase for all projects.
