This is what I tried but then realized something more is needed:

During stalled clone avoid  Ctrl+c. 
1. Copy the content .i.e .git folder some other place.
2. cd <new dir>
3. git config fetch.unpackLimit 999999
4. git config transfer.unpackLimit 999999
5. cat .git/config #to see if config went ok
6. recover process:
 git unpack-objects -r --strict <.git/objects/pack/tmp_pack_0mSPsc

THEN... hopefully thought following should do the trick
 git pull
 git repack + git pull

but then something more is needed.... :)
like index/map file... etc for it work.

Service looks nice. Hope its gets sponsors to keep it running.
