Anything specific you could share?
One thing that would be a lot faster in Perl is if we didn't have to
pass the log around as split-up lines and could just operate on it as
one big string.
It would make some code like git_print_log() a bit more complex /
fragile, since it would have to work on multi-line strings, but
anything that needed to do a regex match / replacement would be much
But OTOH I think perhaps we're worrying about nothing when it comes to
the performance. I haven't been able to make gitweb display more than
a 100 or so commits at a time (haven't found where exactly in the code
these limits are), any munging we do on the log messages would have to
be pretty damn slow to matter.

Yup, been getting bounces from his address.
