[sanewall-dev] git clone with old git 1.5

I noticed that the git repo is available over http only, no git
protocol. Besides being slow when the repository will grow to
undreamt of sizes, this prevents access with older git clients.

Not a huge problem, I mainly wanted to make this post so nobody else
has to wonder what's wrong when getting the following error message:

error: Unable to get pack index http://git.sanewall.org/sanewall.git/objects/pack/pack-dc7abec3e583a40691688f632d4fdb2d92b65808.idx
