Speed-up zsh start
Depending on the way, you install zsh, the installation process clones git-repositories to your home folder $HOME.
Starting zsh does at one point check files git ‘git ls-files’. So, if you have a lot of files and folders in your home directory, this will take some time.
If you want to speedup the start, create a .gitignore file in your home an include all files with not relations to zsh, e.g. .npm, .ssh or .Trash.
