Before the migration this worked:

   git ls-remote git://

Now it does not.

Of course you can replace "git:" with either "http:" or "https:" and  
it will work, but neither the "http:" nor the "https:" variant is  
"smart" enabled whereas the "git:" version was.  The "smart" version  
allows one to only fetch what one does not have whereas the non-smart  
version requires fetching of entire packs even when all you need is  
the latest commit.  The "http:" and "https:" versions can be smart- 
enabled by using git-http-backend (see "git help http-backend" for  
example configs).
