Hello Joel,

I'm not sure whether something has been changed in the last few days but it seems that both is available via the cgit web interface:

This command works for me:
    git clone
It's only awfully slow and does not display any status informations. So don't get impatient. I don't think that pushing would be possible but you can get the complete history.

Regarding the archives:
I think you should be able to download the repository at every commit as a tar.gz. But I would expect that you will loose the history information. For example for the last commit you can use
The file is linked at this page:

I'm not sure how that would work together with RSB. You might have to clone the repository in an extra step at the expected source location before starting to build anything.
