I'm getting large delays too. I only noticed today, but I haven't really
checked since last Thursday.

I am also noticing when cloning a new repo, I get:

warning: remote HEAD refers to nonexistent ref, unable to checkout.

Apparently the HEAD ref is not being exported by the server. Solution:
`git checkout master` -- but that is still rather confusing.
