Today, with solar's help, I updated the repo 
to a conversion from a couple of days ago. The git.overlays server ran 
out of disk space while I was pushing, so it required some backend 
fiddling to replace the old repo with the new one. That's where solar 
came in.

We've got 100 MB packs now. Hopefully that works reasonably for most 
people. I think connections are dropped after 30 minutes, which means 
you need to download around 50 K/s to get a full pack before you get 
killed. The total repo size is 1.6 GB, as you'd expect based on the 100 
MB pack size from 

If you've got an old repo, you'll need to force an update:

  git pull origin +master:master
