Which is a relative quality :-) Every time I update the Linux kernel
sandbox I have, it takes many many minutes to run, and often aborts
with a timeout. If this still makes git one of the more efficient
dvcs systems, I don't want to see the other ones :-(

Thinking of git always makes me not complain about the time subversion
needs to produce a certain log message...
