Update config 168.

15 minutes maybe? I didn't watch the clock.

Not very often.

I guess I'm just spoiled by how snappy the update process usually is ;)

About 50 packages changed since 168.mcm. So ideally the update process would only have to download 50 mcds. Instead, it downloaded about 240, forced by the update maps. Which is still better than downloading all 650 mcds corresponding to each commit individually. And a lot better than downloading full mczs, as Levente pointed out.

So, it's not that bad after all.
