Kalle,

Thanks for this.

Firstly, git is not a forked package and Devuan uses Debian's packages directly
without recompilation. So in principle this issue should be reported to Debian's
BTS.

However, I cannot reproduce this behaviour and I am confused about your setup.

This is the testing/unstable version, however

this implies you are running Jessie.

Jessie has been end of life and archived since July 2020.

What suite are you running?

Can you ensure your system is fully up to date, and then try to reproduce the
issue?

Thanks

Mark

Package: git
Version: 1:2.30.0-1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

Attempting

    git clone https://tildegit.org/solene/vger.git

... puts "git-remote-https" into a perpetual spin and never proceeds.

Cloning the repo on a different computer on the same network (amd64, running an
earlier version of git) works immediately.

Causing a coredump and reading the backtrace indicates that execution is stuck
in `_nettle_chacha_core' of libnettle.so.8, and upgrading the `libnettle8'
package to 3.7-2 does not solve the problem.

This problem has existed for more than a year now, i.e. from before the
pandemic.

Regards,
  -KS
