I think, the main request here is to have the repo available over a 
"standard port" (yay, it's PHBs and BOFHs ruining the party again).

We already provide the cbv2 repo over https (as documented on 
http://www.coreboot.org/Download_coreboot ), and it should be easy to 
provide the other repos as well. It should be easy to map them into the 
http namespace on coreboot.org, if that's truly necessary.
