Re: [jgit-dev] jGit memory management and optimizations

Oh, I have more than enough RAM. But for an application that runs nicely with -xmx 200MB it's a bit odd that adding jgit means I have to raise that another 500MB just to be certain it doesn't OOME on a large git repository.

Thank you for your feedback.

Since this problem seems hard to fix I'll lower its priority and just take jGit as it is.
