right, and this is a nit, but it's a worthwile nit because i had to ask,  
it should say:

   git clone http://git.alsa-project.org/http/alsa-driver.git alsa-driver

instead of just:

   http://git.alsa-project.org/http/alsa-driver.git alsa-driver

because it's inconsistent with how the 'proper' mechanism is listed on the  
website, worse yet, when you click on the url you get a perfectly  
reasonable web page that would lead you to conclude that http access is  
meant to be done 'by hand'.

not a big deal, but it seemed like a good UX/QA thing to mention...

tnx for your consideration in any case!
