* Do these changes improve the speed of updating a local repository? Updating my local repository takes a long time.

* Do these changes improve anonymous connections? Some time ago this was discussed because many people were havng problems connecting anonymously to maintain a local repository.

* In light of my recent post about supporting a point release schedule, how do these changes support several branches, such as a development branch, a stable branch, and past release branches? I have not tried building packages from GIT and am naive about how multiple branches works.
