Right. Neither the client nor server for the http transport knows how to
handle the "git-upload-archive" service (as opposed to the regular
"git-upload-pack" or "git-receive-pack" services). I don't think there's
anything technical standing in the way; it is has simply never been
implemented.

Currently, you can do remote git-archive only locally, via ssh, or over
git:// (but then only if the server side has explicitly enabled it).

Patches welcome.
