I personally love the format Bazaar uses and revision numbers as well as
ids. It is IMHO better than git's. However, it should not imply such a
large performance penalty. I'm sure with better algorithms and data
structures this problem can be solved.
There must be a lot of information that can be computed from the
revision data and cached which is in a format better suited for certain
operations. When I branch I don't want to download this calculated data
as I can compute it in the background on my own machine a lot faster
than I can download it.
So it seems that the packs format is not optimal for logs on single
files. Can't this be represented by a computed and cached alternative
format? At least the next time I log a file it will be very fast. Bazaar
could also do this before I even ask for a log so it is ready the first
Just ideas - I don't know if it makes sense implementation wise....
