Excerpts from Max Bolingbroke's message of Tue Aug 02 10:01:44 -0400 2011:
> Hi GHCers,
> As far as I can tell, darcs.haskell.org does not use fast HTTP cloning
> for the GHC git repository. This means that:
> 1. Cloning the repository over HTTP taking ~7 minutes as opposed to
> the ~2.5 minutes in which I can get it from GitHub (at similar numbers
> of kb/s, saturating my home broadband)
> 2. You can't push over HTTP (might be convenient for those behind
> restrictive firewalls?)
> This *may* also be behind the problem we are having with the GitHub

> though we can't say for sure yet.

> Two things are necessary for the setup:
> 1. Update git to at least v1.6.6 (released January 2010, so
> hopefully available now?). Currently v188.8.131.52 is installed
> 2. Configure Apache 2 according to the instructions at
