Any details of the DoS or how it was mitigated?
(just blocking the IP?)
Anyways, I've setup some mirrors of git.gcrypt.org repos

Cloning over the dumb git protocol over http:// and https://
also works, and I hope to enable the smart git protocol soon
(and also having an HTML git repository viewer which is
friendly to terminal browsers :)
I had a few minor ideas to mitigate resource consumption
problems with git-daemon a while back based on my experience
working on HTTP servers, but haven't gotten around to it:
Obviously not an end-all-be-all. But I've been spending more
time on git-related things this year and trying to improve
the state of self-hosting.
 honestly I've never looked at the code to these,
I subscribed here a while back hoping to work on
something using gcrypt, but I forget what :x
