In Linux, this works for me:
1) install socat and corkscrew

2) make the following script, and put it as /usr/bin/gitproxy:
_proxy=<proxy address>
_proxyport=<proxy port>
exec socat STDIO PROXY:$_proxy:$1:$2,proxyport=$_proxyport

3) git config core.gitProxy gitproxy

4) add in your ~/.ssh/config file:
Host *gitorious.org
    Hostname ssh.gitorious.org
    Port 443
    ProxyCommand corkscrew <proxy address> <proxy port> %h %p

Host codereview.qt-project.org
    Port 29418
    User <your user name>
    IdentityFile ~/.ssh/id_rsa #change this if needed
    ProxyCommand corkscrew <proxy address> <proxy port> %h %p

Thanks for the offer and the help everyone.

After some hacking I discovered that HTTPS was more reliable. I even had to set up NTLMaps (NTML proxy) in addition to configuring the proxy however even with tweaking that (max cons = 50) I was still not able to pull back qtbase and the other large modules, but the smaller modules worked fine (qlalr)

Eventually I "fixed" the problem by going to Starbucks and not using the company LAN. To me, this is a failure of git/gitorious, and just another reason why git sucks. The web works here at work, I don't know why git has to think it's so special. (I'm not commenting on the other features of git, just the network protocol(s)) I should not have to jump through such hoops in 2012. Adding insult to injury, my coffee was over priced and they used soy milk instead of regular milk.

Anyway, I should be good now, since the updates should be less sizable.

Thanks again for your help and your offers :-)

So where can I get a source snapshot, old school style?
Jason: If you can wait for snail-mail, I can burn a CD (or DVD, if the total size requires one). If that sounds good, reply with your mailing address privately-- and be sure to put the word cuty-five-point-something (wink) in your title. This is a "live" email address, but my spam filters are pretty tough.
