Being able to import a externally hosted repository on Diffusion has helped our team keep track of development of projects they are not directly involved in. We are a young team. We review each other's code and learn good practices from each other, offer suggestions.
For repositories imported on Diffusion, we would like to be able to offer read only via a diffusion clone url. Guys not involved directly in a project mostly don't have even read access to the private repos hosted externally, say github.
If we could allow them to clone the repo from Diffusion instead, they could clone and set the project up locally.
Currently diffusion shows the external clone url (github) for such repositories.
