Has anyone successfully implemented Git over Tor?

I know hosting a repo server is a vastly different beast, but it may help to start somewhere

As far as I know, Gogs and Gitea are fully FOSS, server-side too (no proprietary "enterprise" versions), can be isolated pretty well, and don't look like they're stuck in 1995

But I don't know the internals well enough to see if an entire Hidden Service alternative to GitHub or GitLab can be done in these or something similar

Gitea is a fork of Gogs


Another reason for the sudden interest in Git over Tor is the possibility of a Hidden Service app store. Releasing binaries is all well and good, but having sources available alongside it is a bonus

But "given enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow" is kind of a myth

There are never enough eyeballs

@cypnk Note that things like gitlab/github aren't necessary if you just want a read-only git; a read only git can just be on a plain simple http server, so I assume trivial; not sure what the minimal writeable is; but you don't need all the multiple-project/auth system that the bigger systems give you
