Is it possible these people are on ridiculous corporate networks that
only permit HTTP traffic (via a proxy) and allow no other outgoing
connections beyond their network?

I have been on one of these before, http was the only way I could
checkout sources (from Subversion at the time).

If this is the case, git being awesome as it is, perhaps someone could
set up a remote that offers http cloning that updates once a day or so.
This would let people clone a repo, and still submit their work via
format-patch etc.
