Add a check and more output to protect against invalid REPO_URLs If you don't know that the url to git-repo itself can be overridden via REPO_URL, it's hard to debug cases where REPO_URL is accidentally set to another repository, e.g. inside a Jenkins CI job. What makes is even harder is that the ".repo/repo" directory gets silently removed in such cases as verifications fails, which makes it impossible to look at the cloned files to understand the problem. To better protect against such an issue, warn if the cloned git-repo repository does not contain a top-level "repo" file, and state that the ".repo/repo" directory will be removed in case of a clone failure.

Repo is a tool built on top of Git. Repo helps manage many Git repositories, does the uploads to revision control systems, and automates parts of the development workflow. Repo is not meant to replace Git, only to make it easier to work with Git. The repo command is an executable Python script that you can put anywhere in your path.
