HTTPS timeouts on GitHub

This issue: Downloads as tar.gz truncated seems to be caused by GitHub timing out after about 25 minutes on HTTPS gets. It is easy to replicate with this command:
wget --limit-rate=100k https://github.com/mfthomps/Labtainers/tarball/master -O labtainer-master.tar
This is breaking our product, preventing folks with basic DSL from getting development files.
