I just managed to clone it with GitHub for Windows.
The problem is that the include directory with last commit 2 years ago
is prefixed with whitespace, so it is " include", whereas the latter
is "include" (screenshot attached, not sure if it will get through).
I guess that GitHub trims the blank characters before rendering HTML,
so it is not visible.
