It looks to me like there's some kind of a permissions issue with either your installation of git or with the tmp/ directory with the rails app and that the rake task is failing when it tries to create an empty git repository to clone the styles into. Check that your current user has permission to read from /usr/share/git-core/templates/hooks and has permission to write to /home/myadmin/public_html/openconferenceware/tmp
Let me know if that fixes things.

Running this as root isn't the best solution, as it will cause the downloaded styles to be created as root as well, which will cause further problems. You'll want to (as root) remove tmp/style_clone and then change the permissions on either tmp or your git-core directory, whichever is causing the issue.

It seems like this is a connection issue. I'm able to download from this repository without issue.
