Hey all, I just added this to the TODO file for public-inbox but
obviously it's intended for git.git (meta@public-inbox cc-ed):

I would've thought somebody had done this by now, but I guess
it's dependent on a bunch of things (TLS layer nowadays, maybe
HTTP/2), so git-daemon support alone wouldn't cut it...
Anyways, until this is implemented, feel free to continue
hammering a way on https://public-inbox.org/git/ with frequent
"git fetch". I write C10K servers in my sleep -_-
