Which manuals?

IIUC, a dumb HTTP(S) server that accepts only GET can still serve
"git fetch", and an FTP(s) server would be able to do the same using
similar codepath, but I do not think these can accept "git push".  A
dumb HTTP(S) may be able to accept "git push" if it does WebDAV, but
I do not think there is corresponding FTP support at all.
