This is quite unfortunate. We currently experience problem with
GetComponents on Queenbee. There seem to be two issues. One is that
the version of git installed on queenbee is older than we had expected
and the GetComponents script uses git commands that do not exist yet
in that version. We have a proposed fix in
https://trac.einsteintoolkit.org/ticket/1395#comment:12 where a patch
to GetComponents is also provided. We will port the fix back into the
release version soon. Until then, you can patch your copy of
GetComponents on queenbee like this:

cd $HOME
curl --silent
| patch -p1

Alternatively instead of download the code using GetComponents, you
can also download a tarball http://einsteintoolkit.org/tarballs/

The second issue is that the --parallel option of GetComponents may
not work correctly, in that case please simply leave out the
- --parallel option when calling GetComponents, this will likely slow
down your checkout procedure unfortunately.
