There was a conversation on #osuosl last week about gitweb setup for performance, which I attached.

I'm still not convinced of that. The alternative would require a patch to git-submodules, some additional tools support for grabbing additional repos with checkouts and repoman, but it has some compelling advantages (like non-devs don't need 1 GB of web space / bandwidth to post their forks of the tree). On the other hand, it would be the easiest, and perhaps that's reason enough, because the people working on it don't have the time to do anything more. -- Thanks, Donnie Donnie Berkholz Developer, Gentoo Linux Blog:
