DNS entry for git.haskell.org active now!

Thanks.  Some quick questions

1. What's the difference between ghc.haskell.org and git.haskell.org?

2. Is there anything to choose between these two?
  ./sync-all -r     git://git.haskell.org remote set-url origin
  ./sync-all -r    http://git.haskell.org remote set-url origin

3. The repositories page http://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/WorkingConventions/Repositories says "this page has been replaced by "Repositories" but the link is circular.. leads to the same page.

4. The Gitolite plan page http://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/GitolitePlan is very helpful, but is in the nature of a "delta"/change-over plan.  Are you planning to replace it (perhaps on "Repositories"?) with instructions for how to use the new setup?  I think that would be v helpful for dolts like me.

| Hello GHC Devs,
| Hopefully, the new DNS entry for git.haskell.org should be visible for
| all of you by the time you read this. This mostly completes the
| migration part of the GitolitePlan[1].
| With the new hostname, the URLs to use for `sync-all` to fetch via
| git://, http://, or ssh:// (ordered by increasing latency & url length)
| are
|   ./sync-all -r     git://git.haskell.org remote set-url origin
|   ./sync-all -r    http://git.haskell.org remote set-url origin
|   ./sync-all -r ssh://git@git.haskell.org remote set-url origin
| ...and for setting the push-URL (via ssh://) use
|   ./sync-all -r ssh://git@git.haskell.org remote set-url --push origin
| Please note that the (deprecated) `/libraries` symlink to `/packages` is
| only supported at the old http://darcs.haskell.org/ Git repo location.
| Finally, the new Gitweb interface[2] to the GHC Git repos should have
| become accessible for everyone (w/o hacking `/etc/hosts`).
| Cheers,
|   hvr
