Git can clone over HTTP, just change git:// to http:// and
it seems to work. I can also clone through a proxy with

	export http_proxy=http://username:password@proxy:port/
	git clone http://whatever

Pushing over HTTP is another question... It's probably not
possible to push to Github over HTTPS, but maybe there are
places that you can push to with only HTTP authentication.
