Bug Description

Hi, I go to https://code.launchpad.net/~alkisg/epoptes/+git/gsoc2018/+delete
I press the Delete button,
but I keep getting the following error:

Timeout error
Sorry, something just went wrong in Launchpad.
We’ve recorded what happened, and we’ll fix it as soon as possible. Apologies for the inconvenience.
Trying again in a couple of minutes might work.
(Error ID: OOPS-e9f7efb3ba3a49bef6802a1856978481)

...please delete that repository for me. Thank you.

Hi, I tried again today, still the same issue, that repository isn't deleteable and needs to be removed manually by some administrator.

It's odd that the delete from Job is so slow, since selecting from it is quite quick on staging. Perhaps there are some badly organised indexes or something.

If we can't fix the delete to be fast, we may have to invent a "deleting" status for Git repositories, and then make this asynchronous.

Could you please give this another try? We may still need the asynchronous deletion, but in the meantime we added some more database indexes yesterday (https://code.launchpad.net/~cjwatson/launchpad/more-job-indexes/+merge/367063) which may well have helped.

It fixed the issue for me, thanks!

I tried it on two repositories that I couldn't delete.
Both were imports of external repositories.

Both were successfully deleted just now!
Thanks a lot!

I can also confirm this working on a previously failing repo: https://code.launchpad.net/~pymor/pymor/+git/pymor

It sounds like the indexes did the trick. If we come across new cases where deletion performance is a problem, please file a new bug and we can look into it there.
