The "Internet" itself handles retries. It's not at all like every
TCP/IP stream just gives up when it hits the first error. The
application is normally not even aware it had a few errors durring
the first attempts. The problem is that most people don't want to
keep trying forever if too unstable (not to mention one error in a
million could be mis-interpereted and do the wrong thing).

I wonder if there is a more specific problem you are having. What
exactly is a problem you've had? What error? Are you trying to add
all the files initially, or just committing routine changes? Normally
the routine changes are not anywhere near the size of transmitting
the entire files.
