The git server instructions will be there for everyone, not just for LFS
- same way as the svn server instructions. As for BLFS, I already told
that I won't be maintaining BLFS in any way (not even for systemd) even
if it migrated to git.

I have already converted LFS, BLFS, JHALFS (not entire ALFS repository,
it has a bit strange layout), PATCHES and WWW (www2 on lfs server) and
everything is hosted on my laptop. It's accessible from outside, send me
a message off list if you want to check it out.

Note: My last name is not Krejzi.
