Cool if everyone's fine with that.

I assume the bulk load issue would affect also people doing git-svn
imports or other similar things that need the full version history of
a project. See below for a quick draft of an FAQ entry on the current
best practice as far as I've understood it.

Are there other things we could do to reduce the hit from such bulk
load operations? I know there was the initiative to provide copies of
the entire repository to interested parties for research purposes, but
I guess that doesn't apply to the random developer who wants to
experiment with a cool new visualization tool.

Would it for example be possible to provide periodic (say montly)
per-project repository dumps? I'm not sure how technically feasible
that would be and how easy it would be to use such dumps to bootstrap
things like FishEye or git-svn.
