From: "John Fisher" <fishook2...@gmail.com>
I assert based on one piece of evidence ( a post from a facebook dev)
that I now have the worlds biggest and slowest git
repository, and I am not a happy guy. I used to have the worlds
biggest CVS repository, but CVS can't handle multi-G
sized files. So I moved the repo to git, because we are using that for
our new projects.
keep 150 G of files (mostly binary) from tiny sized to over 8G in a
git is absurdly slow, think hours, on fast hardware.
any suggestions beyond these-
At the moment some of the developers are looking to speed up some of the
code on very large repos, though I think they are looking at code repos,
rather than large file repos. They were looking for large repos to test
some of the code upon ;-)
I've copied the Git list should they want to make any suggestions.
