[Bf-committers] move prebuilt libs from svn to git?

Really, I would need to see a capture from both sides to dig into it. I
need to see what is being sent, and what is received on each side. There
could be some weird firewall stuff happening that is causing fragmentation
or blocking TCP options, or window scaling issues, etc.
As for the default settings for tortoisesvn, the connection stuff I was
referring to was about TCP/IP behaviour, rather than an application
setting. Either way, I need to see what is actually happening. The fact
that I can pull 5-8MB/sec (~40mbit) from Canada and not have a single
interruption is telling. Granted, the host only has around 100 or 200mbit
allocated, iirc. Multiply that by a few dozen people and you have a problem.
For a simpler test, maybe try a large svn check, perhaps some old FreeBSD
ports svn repo if you can find one, something also in .NL, and see how it
goes, just to help eliminate your PC/firewall. Worst case scenario, you can
also poke me in chat and we can try some server side and client side
TBH though, 1gig uplink just isn't a whole lot to serve our user base ;)
