[arch-dev-public] Cronjob for regular git garbage collection

When I broke our projects.archlinux.org vhost, I noticed that cloning 
git via http:// takes ages. This could be vastly improved by running a 
regular cronjob to 'git gc' all /srv/projects/git repositories. It would 
also speed up cloning/pulling via git://, as the "remote: compressing 
objects" stage will be much less work on the server. Are there any 
objections against setting this up?
