[egit-dev] upload to gerrit over HTTP

Currently the only way to upload a patch into Gerrit is by SSH on
port 29418... which some firewalls may block.  Is this an issue
for anyone right now?

The Git send-pack/receive-pack protocol (aka what is under git
push) is actually rather trivial to pipe in HTTP since its easily
modeled as two HTTP requests.  We could pioneer the smart push
over HTTP protocol in JGit and at least deploy a prototype of it
on if being able to push over HTTP would make the
site more accessible to contributors.

Its the Git fetch-pack/upload-pack protocol (under git fetch)
that is hard to make smart in HTTP.
