Continuing the discussion from Process the meta awesome list:
@tim, I am currently mirroring 128 repos on ATC. I haven’t noticed any reduction of service, but wanted to point out in many cases it is checking those every 8 hours. I don’t know if there is a way to increase the default to something longer (a week/168 hours).
On the other hand, it is a cloud VPS doing git checks, and I imagine that is a very fast interaction, and since these are all MS-Git, they are probably mad-cached for the lists that haven’t been updated in a while (again, of which there are many).
Let me know if it becomes an issue, we’ll work it.
