repo.or.cz allows http checkouts from its clones, and its mirroring does
not even require setting up cron jobs (that is, repo polls upstream,
rather than requiring upstream to push down, and usually is less than a
few hours behind upstream HEAD). And I have used it in the past as a way
to get around firewalls that block git://.

I'm not opposed to having a github read-only mirror, although I probably
won't be using it myself.
