    If it's not apparent in the ticket report, the issue is because the version control plugin does an FSTAT on all files in the packages and project settings directory. Probably to catch assets not tracked by the asset database (packages-lock, manifest, etc) and therefore outside of normal version control flow. However, packages that are source visible and versioned in the Packages directory can be very large (visual scripting, render pipelines, etc.) AND are generally managed by the asset database as well. The FSTAT operation on thousands of files can cause the editor to take many minutes to open. It should not stat these files.
