That's the beauty of pristine-tar.  You don't actually commit the full
.tar.gz file to Git.  You only commit just enough metadata to recreate it
from the tagged upstream tree.  It's only a checksum and an xdelta file
that's usually about 4-16KB.

Alioth does support Git hosting.  I don't recall if guest accounts can
request new projects, but I could certainly request a project, either one
for both GSS and Shishi or one for each.  Once the project is created,
guest accounts have no problem doing everything else with it.
