I'm not familiar with the internals
<http://progit.org/book/ch9-6.html> of a git push or pull, but there
is a lot of consistency checking going on, checking that none of the
objects in either repository have become corrupted. I noticed this
today when a colleague was just pushing a new branch into a remote
repository. The branch had only diverged a few commits away from an
existing branch, but still it took many minutes of "uploading" for the
branch to get created on the remote.
If you're looking for some real git developers, you're better of
asking on the real mailing list:
thank you for the useful comments and the link, I will try to bug
the developers and see if they have any solutions.
