I think that pulling from kernel.org became slower too. (not sure
exactly when but probably since about a year).

When I run git pull, it just sits there for a long time, with no visible
network/disk I/O, and only after that it starts the "remote: Counting
objects" phase.
I just tried to measure that time and it is ~12s now, which is not that
bad, but I remember that I even had to wait minutes to see the "Counting
objects" phase in December.

Is it because git on the server side needs to figure out which objects I
already have and which I don't? But I thought thats part of the
"Counting objects" phase, so what happens before that, and why are there
no progress messages about it?

Best regards,
--Edwin
