I'm not sure why you get this error.

I can successfully clone using the exact same command.

I can however also confirm that I get a HTTP 403 error on the URL
shown in the error message. I guess the version of Git that you are
using requests different things from the server than my version.

I am using version with success. Which version are you using?

If your Git version is older than 1.6.6 then please upgrade to a
version >= 1.6.6, since that version gained significant performance
improvements specifically when using HTTP.
