git over http really is no fun at the moment and one should really
use git:// whenever possible. Where it is not possible due to
tightknotted corporate firewalls, well, that's (a) their problem and
(b) they probably know already how to go around it.

If in doubt, just add a paragraph that one can exchange git://
by http://, but I would not make it that obvious to use an inferior
transfer protocol.
