"fab setup_deps" fails to download angular module from github

Hi guys,

I have a problem when running this command “fab setup_deps”. It installs many “ext_modules” but then it stops at “ext_modules/angular” and fails with fata: unable to connect to github.com

localhost] local: git submodule update --init --recursive
Cloning into ‘ext_modules/angular’…
fatal: unable to connect to github[dot]com:
github.com[0:]: errno=Connection timed out

Clone of ‘git://github.com/indico/angular.js.git’ into submodule path ‘ext_modules/angular’ failed

Fatal error: local() encountered an error (return code 1) while executing ‘git submodule update --init --recursive’

This doesn’t allow me to run indico successfully, as when I run “indico run -h dev-events02 -p 8003 -q --enable-evalex” and go to the browser I see this error “webassets.exceptions.BundleError”

First of all, 2.1 is no longer supported and you should update to 2.2 as soon as possible (and 2.2 no longer uses fab setup_deps)!

And I think the error is pretty clear: For some reason your system can’t connect to github.com - either you have a (way too restrictive) firewall blocking it, or something is wrong with your network (since GitHub isn’t down).
