   See the discussion of this old and outdated message at PEP 103:

   The recommended parameters for git repack are --depth=20 --window=250
See http://vcscompare.blogspot.ru/2008/06/git-repack-parameters.html

   But yes, you're right, git gc/repack is very much recommended.

           Programmers don't die, they just GOSUB without RETURN.
