A simple git pack-refs seems to clean it up. The original test did complete in ~77mins last night. A rerun with a sorted file takes ~61mins, -Martin PS: This test was performed with git version 220.127.116.11 on linux 2.6.32-37-generic #81-Ubuntu SMP -- The Qualcomm Innovation Center, Inc. is a member of Code Aurora Forum, hosted by The Linux Foundation -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
