Fix push with jgit pgm failing with "unauthorized"
Pushing with JGit commandline to e.g. Github failed with "unauthorized" since HttpUrlConnection calls the configured authenticator implicitly. The problem is that during a push two requests are sent to the server, first a GET and then a POST (containing the pack data). The first GET request sent anonymously is rejected with 401 (unauthorized). When an Authenticator is installed the classes will use the Authenticator to ask the user for credentials and retry the request. But this happens under the hood and JGit level code doesn't see that this happens. The next request is the POST but since JGit thinks the first GET request went through anonymously it doesn't add authentication headers to the POST request. This POST of course also fails with 401 but since this request contains a lot of body-data streamed from JGit (the pack file!) the classes can't simply retry the request with authorization headers. The whole process fails. Fix this by using Apache httpclient which doesn't use Authenticator to retrieve credentials. Instead initialize TransportCommand to use the default credential provider if no other credentials provider was set explicitly. org.eclipse.jgit.pgm.Main sets this default for the JGit command line client.
