Can you add http protocol support for the git repository

As I am situated behind a corporate firewall, I cannot directly access the repository using the git:// protocol.
Most git repositories that I know can be accessed by just changing the git:// part to http://, but this doesn't currently work on the repositories at git.jetbrains.org.
If I try it I get this response:

maarten@pc174:~$ git clone http://git.jetbrains.org/idea/community.git idea
Initialized empty Git repository in /home/maarten/idea/.git/
fatal: http://git.jetbrains.org/idea/community.git/info/refs not found: did you run git update-server-info on the server?
maarten@pc174:~$


Would it be possible to enable this so that more people can connect to the repository?

Hello Martin,

Unfortunately the http git access creates excessive load on our servers, and because of that we're currently not providing that. However, it's likely that we'll be providing source tarballs for CE builds as an option for those who can't access the git repository directly.

Could you keep an updated clone of the repository on another git hosting site? e.g. github

Yes, it's likely that we'll provide a mirror of the code on github soon.
