Hmm, this doesn't seem to work.  My guess is that it uses a different 
port which clearly won't work unless I force the admins here to open up 
the git port.

$ git clone --origin svn git://github.com/pv/scipy-svn.git scipy.git
Initialized empty Git repository in /home/prabhu/src/git/scipy.git/.git/
github.com[0:]: errno=Connection timed out
fatal: unable to connect a socket (Connection timed out)
fetch-pack from 'git://github.com/pv/scipy-svn.git' failed.

Note, that I can certainly ssh just fine to the outside world.
