Not that I have any idea how RH TLV is setup, but I wonder if a local
mirror could be set up. It wouldn't solve the push speed, but at least
fetching could be sped up.

Personally I have the following in my ~/.gitconfig:

[url "git://gerrit.ovirt.org/"]
        insteadOf = "ovirt:"
[url "ssh://USERNAME@gerrit.ovirt.org:29418/"]
	pushInsteadOf = "ovirt:"

Then I clone my repos as:

git clone ovirt:vdsm -o gerrit

This results in the following:

$ git remote -v
gerrit	git://gerrit.ovirt.org/vdsm (fetch)
gerrit	ssh://USERNAME@gerrit.ovirt.org:29418/vdsm (push)

RH TLV users could then change their fetch URL to the local mirror.

Given RH TLV should set this up, I'm mostly looking at Itamar to see if
this is an acceptable solution.
