+ If the number of objects imported by linkgit:git-fast-import[1]
+ is below this limit, then the objects will be unpacked into
+ loose object files. However if the number of imported objects
+ equals or exceeds this limit then the pack will be stored as a
+ pack. Storing the pack from a fast-import can make the import
+ operation complete faster, especially on slow filesystems. If
+ not set, the value of `transfer.unpackLimit` is used instead.
