The Fisheye guys know to contact us before importing history as they
know that they have routinely brought the machine down.  AFAICT, Ohloh
hasn't worked off SVN but rather off releases - and, to the best of my
knowledge, they haven't tripped any of our DoS measures...yet.

I only care as much as you don't place an unreasonable drain on our
public services.  If it takes 100x more compute and network power to
service git-svn than a normal svn client, then our capacity is blown
out of the water.

I have to provision the resources as best as I can given the ASF's
constraints.  We don't have an endless amount of CPU or network cycles
to spend on users using tools that are inefficient and deny service to
others.  If you'd like to donate either your time or money to seeing
we have the service you desire, it's appreciated.  Until then, I have
to make the decision that serves the most people.  -- justin
