Other examples to look at:

 git cinnabar <https://github.com/glandium/git-cinnabar>

 remote-testsvn.c in git.git (though it will be moving to contrib/ and
 then out of git.git fairly soon)

These might be more helpful than git-remote-http because they are
fast-import-based helpers.

Thanks and hope that helps,
