tla 1.2 is far too slow for e.g. commits and listing changes with the
configuration we use. Just yesterday I did a commit that finished in 15
minutes even with revision libraries (greedy+sparse).

What machine are you using? Do you work over NFS?

I also use arch for storing the Linux kernel and I'm quite happy with
it. It is, indeed, better to hard-link to the revision library. I
noticed that it gets slow with time so I re-create the tree with
"tla get --link" from time to time.
Do you realize that "tla changes --link" will re-link the tree without having to rebuild it?

Has anyone tried breaking up the kernel repository with configurations? It seems like the kernel would have some natural dividing lines that could be used to decrease how large the individual trees are.
