I just posted a status update to -council . I am working to resolve
an issue that results in absurd memory and CPU use on the server side
when cloning a fresh repo. In theory, this should simply grab the packs
and ship them over the network to the client side. In reality, there's a
ton of repacking going on that is making it take 5 minutes before it
even starts shipping data over the wire.
