It's because CGit only supports the dumb HTTP protocol whereas GitHub
supports the smart protocol. git-http-backend(1) describes how to set
up a webserver for to support the smart protocol.
[aside: given the inefficiency of the dumb HTTP protocol I wonder if we
should mark this features as deprecated in the CGit documentation, or at
least add a WARNING to it.]
