When I started using git annex I annex’d a few folders full of thousands of mostly tiny files; there were big files too, hence the use of git-annex. I now realise that this is making git slow because it’s got a lot of symlinks to keep track of. Since I very rarely access these files I plan to tar up the folders, and annex the tar archives, thus taking a lot of load off git.
Now that my history is full of loads of tiny symlinks and git-annex logs though, would it be better to start a fresh repository or will a git repack remove any performance issues? Thanks. S
