I really would appreciate being able to checkout new mahara versions using git (because of the simple "git pull" to get all updates). I am using this for moodle working like a charm - without the need of being a git magician.
When trying to get this running with mahara (e.g. the new 16.04 release) I stumble into a line saying the css for the theme is missing I should do a
which simply is not possible on my hosted server - I cannot get these privileges (and I do not want to).

There is also this bug report :
You can download the zip file and copy the css files on top of your copy.
I know it's not ideal but it's a work around for the time being.
