1) This error has absolutely nothing to do with XFCE vs GNOME vs
I switched to "testing sparkleshare" mode. It's an error from
sparkleshare (as printed on terminal) after I followed the instructions
on wiki, I'm not making any assumptions here WRT used DE.
2) You can simply put your username @ in the field for the repo
location. So you can do mso(a)foobar.baz/qux.git and it will use the
'mso' username. You can also go into the .git/config directory of the
repo and change it there.
I can if I work with git directly (and I do so already for e.g. the
backgrounds, echo-icon-theme, fedora packaging, ...), but I don't know,
how to do that with SparkleShare.

Do you just want the backgrounds? I am very happy to set up a
separate repo (maybe 'fedora-backgrounds' ?) for them if as
maintainer you are okay with that.
That's a separate problem from what I've been discussing in this mail,
sorry for the little mix-up. So to better explain the two
* since the repo is big, I want, when using sparkleshare, to clone it
to location specified by me (pointing to extern HDD where I have
enough space). Yes, I can workaround that with bind mounts but I'd
expect more user-friendly solution from such app.
* for the backgrounds I'd like to have a smaller repo
(fedora-backgrounds is OK with me) that does not have the files
supposed to be worked on with sparkleshare.
I have been in the process of trying to set up a clone of the repo
our fedorapeople/groups/designteam space so individual files could be
downloaded without a full clone, but I still have a few issues to
You can download individual files from the cgit web interface already,
but you cannot push unless you have full clone. I'm not sure I follow
what are you trying to achieve here.

Please, no: Not here.
Won't happen again, sorry, I had to write it somewhere after
discovering it (hence the [OT RANT] pseudo-tag)...
