I assume this community is at least slightly familiar with Tor and its
usefulness, so I'll cut to the chase. The Git website git-scm.com is
behind Cloudflare, which is currently configured to block suspicious
requests which unfortunately include Tor users. It would be greatly
appreciated to lower Cloudflare security settings to allow Tor users.
If the additional traffic really becomes an issue (I see the website
uses RoR backend ) then consider caching pages if that isn't already
Ideally the use of Cloudflare would be avoided entirely, but
I will not get into the politics of that here. Being able to access the
static portions of the site behind Tor is enough for me currently.
