[Viame] issue downloading

If "git clone [any git repo] [source dir]" for all git repos is not working
(not just for VIAME) you might need to check to see if you have heavy
firewall settings enabled that are blocking git, or other internet
connectivity issues. For just cloning a repository using https, you should
not need a github account - though it definitly doesn't hurt to have one.
Once the git clone is successful, the submodule command that Yogesh pointed
out is what actually initializes those folders, as they're just links to
exact versions of other repositories on github.
If all else fails, or your IT department is blocking git somehow (in which
case I would break out the pitch forks) you can use the full source
download package I'm putting together for the people on the boat.
