We've been playing with commit graphs at GitHub and found a few bits of low-hanging fruit (one liners -- it doesn't get any lower than that).
The first one is actually a resurrection of a patch from March: https://public-inbox.org/git/20190322102817.19708-1-szeder....@gmail.com/ where the progress bar sometimes prints nonsense. There's some discussion in that thread about how we could sometimes show a real percentage instead of a counting-up progress meter. But given the number of corner cases discussed, and the fact that nothing has happened for 6 months, I think we should first make sure we're always doing the _correct_ thing, and then people can build a nicer meter on top if they want to. The second is a fix for a small memory "leak", but it makes a big difference.
