After cloning the NetBSD git repository (which took some hours with a
not too fast connection), I pulled changes made on it while I was
cloning. After cloning it, it automatically ran "git gc" that is taking
hours to complete.

I asked about that in #git@freenode and people told me that, if this
command is run on the server, it doesn't need to be run frequently for
clients that clone it.

I'm a ordinary git user, so I don't know what exactly must be done.

Anybody runs this command on the server?
