/var/git/meta-repo not present in stage3



I'm installing on an old laptop using the next Core2_64/stage3-latest.tar.xz.  I attempted ego sync and it errored out stating that /var/git/meta-repo was missing.  I was able to get it working by cloning it off github.  You might want to look at all the stage3 tarballs and make sure meta-repo is included and patch it if necessary.

Meta-repo is not included in the stage3 tarballs. You have to run "ego sync" to get it. The problem here is that "ego sync" errored out. It would be interesting to see why it errored out. It does require a working network connection, so that could be the issue. Hard to tell without more details.
