then we need more data, ideally a minimally working example cooked up
with curl or something.

We used to host suckless via thttp for a long time, but it's quite a
buggy mess. I can definitely recommend OpenBSD httpd[0].

Even though it's possible, given we have an all-static website and
git-http-interface (stagit by Hiltjo), the problem lies with
git-cloning via HTTPS, which is basically a CGI-interface and thus not
within quark's scope. One could simply drop this and only allow cloning
via "git:", but this would disrupt things.

Quark is a tool for 95% of cases, and most suited, I think, if you
quickly want to serve a folder in a conference LAN or a small website
with a few vhosts and stuff, but apart from that, it has its limits,
and suckless' needs exceed its capabilities.

With best regards
