I have a problem in downloading the Odoo in Git due to my intermittent internet connection.
I just want to copy My Odoo 8 the Manual Downloaded Ones to the
git clone <url> --branch <branch> --single-branch [<folder>] git clone https://github.com/odoo/odoo--branch 8.0 --single-branch -- odoo8
You can add
--depth 1 if you don't want the full history, which further reduce the volume of data to download.
The difference (when cloning a repo Git) in downloaded size comes from the branches and their full history.
