||With overlays.gentoo.org being down, by update script takes a long time
||to complete. Instead of Git telling me immediately that it can't connect
||to the server, it just sits there for whole minutes doing nothing before
||it decides to abort.
||This is extremely frustrating. Is there a way to change this behavior of
||Git? Other software doesn't seem to have this problem (for example if I
||browse to a web server that's down, the browser immediately tells me
||that it can't connect, rather going for a coffee break first.)
