… I didn't time the original gitup ports - was very roughly a minute. All this on FreeBSD 12.2p6. …
Thanks. Not significantly different here, where
gitup portsclones into an empty (or nearly empty) directory.
With slightly outdated 12.2-RELEASE-p4, around a minute and a half (1:31.66). Marginally quicker with things warmed up a little (the second screenshot):
It was easy to get below one minute for clone situations. More memory to the machine, then after deletions and a warm-up: fifty-six seconds for the second run.
Where the effect of
gitup portsis to pull, I see diverse timings from diverse use cases (diverse hardware, and so on). Some runs are long, some not.
The diversity surprises some people; I find no problem with it. Keyword for any reader: YMMV
