My estimate was based on this comment [1], which refers to a solution
using MbedTLS as a custom TLS stream with libgit2 [2, 3]. This was(?)
planned for julia 0.6.0, which could indeed take a year until release.

Transparently supporting MbedTLS in upstream libgit2 [4] seems a much
better solution and will work with julia 0.5.0 out of the box. Thanks
for advocating this proposal to the upstream maintainer.
