It seems like git and hg play just fine with a simple http server

After a bit of experimentation seth and I have discovered that git will
work fine over just a static http site, mercurial doesn't appear to.
The thing about all of this is that hosting SCM's was never really a
design requirement for fedorapeople.org
. Its not even live yet and
we're falling into "Give them an inch and they'll take a mile" :)
We're basically allowing shell access to the public here and its the
first time our group has attempted anything like this. I'm fine with
taking baby steps. Using rsync will serve our purposes though it is a
bit nasty. After we've got all the initial bugs out of our system and
know exactly what type of load and use the box is getting lets talk
about this again. I have to say being able to host these things is very
handy, but it does have a cost.
One of the guys in #mercurial suggested sshfs or httpfs as alternatives
