I just asked around on the #git irc channel, and they confirmed that with
80k files, on a regular hard-drive, running git-status (cold = the first
time), one minute can be expected.
Some things you can try:
- Do regular work on a RAM-disk <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAM_drive>(if
you have the memory to spare), but you must remember to always push to
a proper disk before restarting your computer
- Invest in a solid-state-drive <http://lifehacker.com/ssd/>, as these
tend to speed up Git repository operations significantly
- Split your repository into several smaller ones
