git clone on page 44 of progit-en.1084.pdf (2nd try)


I am an easily-derailed newbie reading chapter 2 of progit-en.1084.pdf

(1) On page 44 of my copy, where it first discusses git clone, there's
reference to a "linkable library".  How does this relate to
"repository".  I thought the aim here was to get a clone of a remote

(2) In each of the two example git-clone commands, the "libgit2" appears twice:

git clone https://github.com/libgit2/libgit2

What did make sense to me and worked:

$ git clone https://github.com/komwomak/shtoza SNOW

My  GitHub user name: komwomak
The name of the remote repository out on my GitHub stuff: shtoza
The name of the local repository on the PC: SNOW

I would appreciate knowing whether I have gotten the wrong end of some stick.
