This repo is in the legacy hashed format.  I recommend you do a test
conversion to darcs-2 format and see if that improves matters.

I also note that the repo has tags, but doesn't appear (AFAICT) to have
any checkpoints.  This forces users doing a "darcs get" to perform a
complete checkout, which is quite slow.  You can create a checkpoint

    darcs optimize --checkpoint

Note that checkpoints are not useful for repositories in darcs-2 format.
