git is slow today

Description

Accessing gerrit.ovirt.org via git (ssh and http) is slow today.
The slowness is if I work with git local, but also if CI wants to use git.
This results into timeouts on CI, e.g. in
https://jenkins.ovirt.org/job/ovirt-engine_standard-check-patch/8246/console#L354
:
06:53:16 > git fetch --tags --progress https://gerrit.ovirt.org/ovirt-engine
+refs/changes/65/111065/30:myhead # timeout=20

07:13:16 ERROR: Timeout after 20 minutes

ovirt-engine is a huge repo, we might want to garbage-collect it to speed things up. Better review logs on gerrit first.
