First of all, thanks to everyone who offered advice on this. I decided to go
the http direction and it hasn't been much of a hassle. The documentation is
excellent and everything has worked as expected. People will hopefully begin
migrating tomorrow.

I have one question remaining. I have set up everything and it all works,
except I want to prevent anyone from accessing the repository using http (I
have https working). Is there a way to do this?

Thanks.
