User a new feature of git (since git 1.6.6) : git-http-backend. This backend permit to use http/https to access the git repositories instead of ssh or git protocols. We could have an anonymous access for public project easily, see http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/git-http-backend.html or http://progit.org/2010/03/04/smart-http.html

Agree. As soon as git 1.6.6+ becomes mainstream, I will in fact drop the support of SSH and go full HTTP with client/server SSL certificate. HTTP is way better as one can use load balancing, proxies etc.
