A quick note to cover any other possible questions,
I have been building this app with phonegap build for months. My config.xml file has not changed, including the plugins and their versions used. There has been no issues until last week, and ever since then, I get the following error.
Error - Plugin repo install has timed out on the following plugin, please try building again: https://username:email@example.com/transistorsoft/cordova-background-geolocation.git#1.4.0
I get the same error building on iOS, but android is ok somehow?

My app id is: 740342
Seems to be fixed now.

the issue was your plugin takes 140 seconds to install. we have a timeout so people dont hog the build processes. consider accessing your plugin by a branch or tag and it will speed up considerably. by accessing it by a sha it requires us to clone the full repo then checkout to the sha, instead of doing a quick shallow clone.
i have increased the timeout but i cant guarantee it will not be tightened up later.
Ahh thanks. I didn't know that a shallow clone was even possible. Great tip. I'll fork that repo and add a tag
