Since Git 1.6.6, HTTP(S) remotes are as efficient as the git/SSH protocols.
However, SSH keys are more convenient and secure for automatic
authentication than HTTPS auth. As far as I know, the only way to set up
automatic authentication with git over HTTPS is to store the username and
password in cleartext in ~/.netrc, which for many users is not acceptable.
