the urls are near the top of each repository homepage
for those of you new to git,
http://help.github.com/set-up-git-redirect is a recommended read so
you can setup your git username, email and ssh keys. Once that step is
done, cloning the repo is done with

git clone git at github.com:mapserver/mapserver.git  #will create a
mapserver/ directory in the current working directory.

git clone git at github.com:mapserver/docs.git

let the fun start now !
