    It was back in July 2018 that GCC's conversion to Git was becoming a massive headache and now more than a year later it's looking like that switch from Subversion to Git is still weeks if not months from becoming official...

          I think you missed my point. The article (indirectly) claims that a 16-core 128G TR will likely solve the problem.
          Hardly "unachievable". Sounds like a perfectly normal Workstation to me.

            I'm still waiting for a typo in your comments to correct it and officially become the King Editor of Phoronix.

              Why is this reposurgeon tool needed at all? There have been other projects that migrated to git just fine, without the need for special stuff.

                There will be new Threadrippers available later this year if this isn't good enough.

                  Why do they need this computer, can't they just run it in the cloud?
                  Or can't the Linux Foundation or someone lease them some time on some mainframe or beast computer?
