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 version-control system.

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.
