Ah, I also forgot to elaborate why you got that error message. Now I
just saw other people being confused by the same, so I guess I should.
That's just git/git-daemon's unfriendly way to say "repository not
found". That's not fault at our servers, it's just how git, the most
popular version control system in the world, works, for example:

$ git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/git/git-loves-to-confuse-people.git
Initialized empty Git repository in /home/pfalcon/tmp/git-loves-to-confuse-people/.git/
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
