Agreed. Using ALPN wouldn't actually end up using HTTPS; it would negotiate with the server and end up connected directly to a git program speaking an arbitrary protocol over TLS. Many web servers already support ALPN to negotiate HTTP/2, so this seems plausible. Another alternative would be to define a framing for a full-duplex git-upload-pack connection inside a single HTTP/2 connection; HTTP/2 already effectively allows full-duplex asynchronous conversations. - Josh Triplett
