SubjectRe: host a git archive on an rsync server?

You can rsync the bare repo from kernel.org at:

rsync://rsync.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git

After you get the rsync of the bare tree, do:

git clone --reference linux-2.6.git git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git

then you can delete the linux-2.6/.git/objects/info/alternates file and
copy the linux-2.6.git/objects/ tree to linux-2.6/.git/objects/.

(Making the separate clone and moving over the referenced objects is the
best way to ensure that the resulting repo has the same settings as a
direct clone would have. You may want to run a git gc after all of that
to pack any loose objects from the rsync'ed repo.
