The git protocol is a insecure protocol, we should also support cloning over https.
A potentially useful reference (not known to be correct):
Showing the URL required for cloning is a good accessibility improvement.
Yes. git protocol is insecure over untrusted network as documented in official git-scm.org site itself.
Please use new protocol for http/https protocol and not the old dumb protocol.
hmm really we should be doing git tag signing and/or git commit sign-off,
with gpg keys. relying on HTTPS in particular for security just paints
a bullseye on the server.
