You can clone with
HTTPS or Subversion.
For a language shell created with create_language.pl, "perl Configure.pl --gen-parrot" fails with the following error:
$ perl Configure.pl --gen-parrot
Argument "$Revision$" isn't numeric in addition (+) at Configure.pl line 25, <$REQ> line 1.

Unable to locate parrot_config
To automatically checkout (svn) and build a copy of parrot r0,
try re-running Configure.pl with the '--gen-parrot' option.
Or, use the '--parrot-config' option to explicitly specify
the location of parrot_config to be used to build ../banter.
I download parrot repo separately (using the command "git clone https://github.com/parrot/parrot.git") just to be sure that git is able to clone the repo and the clone worked fine. The language was generated using create_language.pl and parrot 4.1.0.
