Using the git:// protocol is generally more efficient than http://
because you are talking to a smart server on the other end that can just
send the packs you need for your fetch operation.  http:// is a dumb
protocol (in the sense that there is no program on the other end that
knows anything about the git repository) so you end up transferring more
data than you really need to.
