I was thinking that the OP was saying that the three operations together 
were taking a long time. I guess it would be helpful to know which of the 
commands is taking so long, the "add", "commit", or the "push". If it is 
the "add", I don't know a way to speed it up. That is all done locally. The 
same with the "commit". The "push" might be faster to "sneaker net" as I 
think you were suggesting. But that's only if the repository is being 
stored somewhere that the OP can get to physically. Trying that on our 
network here at work would be a "naughty! Slap hands!" situation.
