Speed should be matter of initial clone only. Once you have it locally,
fetching updates are reasonably small even for connection speeds like 10kb/s...

What we could perhaps do on our part is to clone master branch, compress
it into single file and put on the http://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/devel/
with short readme explaining the situation.
We have currently two chinese mirrors, so there is a good chance for you to get
the initial clone very fast and then continue by fetching from original source
(US, Oregon).

@Riki: we used to have something like this on the ftp in the svn-git times.
ATM it should be enough just to do clean clone, take only .git directory,
tar.xz(*) it, create signature and upload to ftp.
I can create some explanation on our web...


(*) And zip? Dunno whether zipped clone on linux will work in windows
    environment. Alternatively we could ask Euegen for windows based
