Hi Ben, hi everyone,

I'm writing to let you know that since June 10 the Phabricator copy of 
Krita's repository is broken.

The initialization log from the Manage repository page says:

 > Pull of 'krita' failed: Command failed with error #128! COMMAND git 
ls-remote '********' STDOUT (empty) STDERR fatal: remote error: Please 
use the https: protocol to connect to anongit

so I think this change may have to do with it.

I hope it can be solved soon, as I'm developing my GSoC project and 
cannot bind recent commits to the finished tasks.

cc to the Krita mailing list to let them know as well.

Best regards,
