Suggestion: Sublime Merge should trigger git gc/housekeeping


I use Sublime Merge daily at my job, but over weeks (or maybe months) it tends to get really slow on certain operations such as doing a rebase.

I think this might be due to it never triggering any cleanup on the git repo, because today it took 30s per commit while rebasing and after I went to redo it on the command line, just to check if it was the same it told me (after I reset my branch):

Auto packing the repository in background for optimum performance.
See "git help gc" for manual housekeeping.

And after that trying the rebase again in Sublime Merge it was 10x faster.



Hi @Barabas,

Thanks for reaching out and sorry to hear you’re experiencing this issue with Sublime Merge.
I’ll be investigating this further. Could you confirm if you’re running Sublime Merge on Windows?

Kind regards,
