Linus seems happy with this first test. I just hope the disk usage doesn't become an issue down the road.

That's pretty exactly the "one patch per second" I was aiming for (0.8 seconds per patch, so my estimate from a few days ago of 0.75 was pretty much on the money). > du -sh .git 102M .git > time dotest ~/andrews-first-patchbomb ..

So say an expansion of about 10x over the pure emailed patches. Which is not out-of-line with my expectations, but considering that you _could_ have just compressed the patches and thrown the headers away and you'd have gotten a 190kB archive of just pure patches, it's not like this is hugely space-efficient. I don't think I ever claimed it would be ;) Anyway, I'm not going to release this tree, because quite frankly I want to double-check that everything went right, and I want to re-base the archive on some more history than starting _purely_ from scratch in 2.6.12-rc2 (maybe from 2.6.11), but in general it looks good. Now, if I can get the stupid merging going on, it will actually be _useful_ ;) Linus PS. Yes, the tree still builds after this exercise ;)
