Paul Eggleton - Dec. 2, 2013, 6:50 p.m.
We don't normally perform any operations (such as "git pull") that
trigger "git gc --auto", thus garbage collection never happens which
means performance of accessing the repository degrades noticeably over
time. Add an explicit "git gc --auto" to clean things up when needed.

Thanks to Elijah Newren and Ross Burton for suggesting this.
