I actually concerned by this. A client I work for has a large Git repo. I
doubt its size is anywhere close to the Linux repo, but its performance is
abysmal. Navigating the git log or invoking "git checkout" takes minutes. It
is almost completely unusable.

I'm sure you've read this by now, but HG seems a better fit for these larger

All this to say: I would tread carefully. Out of curiosity, is there a
reason that Apache projects can't use Mercurial?
