Cloning typescript repo from codeplex

So trying to clone typescript repo from codeplex i am getting:

$ git clone
Cloning into 'typescript'...
remote: Counting objects: 454417, done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (39295/39295), done.
remote: Total 454417 (delta 410526), reused 453853 (delta 410117)

__error: RPC failed; result=56, HTTP code = 200__
Resolving deltas: 100% (410526/410526), done.

From reading it looks like the only way to fix this on my machine - is to recompile GIT, which I definitely do not want to do. Workaround? Import it first to GitHub and clone from there :)

When hovering over "+" sign on github there is option to import repository. Just paste into URL and submit form. It will take a while :)
