Err, http:// access works fine with gitorious. I think
you simply didn't wait long enough. GIT's  HTTP access
mechanism is seriously inefficient, and doesn't appear
to give you ongoing progress feedback like the git://
protocol, so expect to wait a while. I've verified I
can clone the main GIT repo over http in about 2 minutes

 git clone http://git.gitorious.org/libvirt/libvirt.git
