Jean-Yves is correct, that line retrieves the main MythTV repo and put 
it in a directory named mythweb...

The correct command line would be

git clone git://github.com/MythTV/mythweb.git

(which I posted a week ago)

I am not an expert on Git terminology but AFAIK MythTV and MythWeb are 
in two separate Git repositories... You can't retrieve from one and 
expect to get the other (like the command line you posted above 
suggested). My guess is there was a problem when you cut & pasted that 
command in your email and this is *not* the command line you use...

Have a nice day,
