I tried some time ago to import the BKCVS revisions since Linux 2.6.9
into a monotone-0.16 repository. I later tried to upgrade the database
(repository) to monotone version 0.17. The result - converting ~3500
revisions would have taken more than *one year*, fact confirmed by the
monotone developers. The bottleneck seemed to be the big size of the
manifest (which stores the file names and the corresponding SHA1
values) and all the validation performed when converting. The
solution, unsafe, is to disable the revision checks in monotone but
you can end up with an inconsistent repository (haven't tried this).
