I am not using a git:// URL and a git daemon because the repo is currently on a 
shared hosting server. In terms of the speed of git, I've already tested with 
several clones of the repo, and since speech-dispatcher as a repository is 
rather small, and the objects have been packed, it is rather quick to check out 
the repo with a good internet connection.

I considered this, however as I said, Brailcom are considering moving to git 
from what I can tell, and if thats the case, then my repo will be temporary. 
Git is also decentralized, which means everyone who wants to work on it can 
host their branch whereever, and however they would like. Git has a great patch 
handling system for those who want to send small patches, and has a great way 
to send a pull request to the project authors to pull from a git repo with 
several changes.

Ok thanks for the offer, that will be much appreciated.
