But sometimes a svn repository is a lot larger. I converted a CVS
repository contraining only 2 files. Both files are uncompressed tar
files at around 2 MiB each. The repository has 90 revisions. The
relevant sizes are:

CVS repo: only 22 MiB.

Dump file generated by cvs2svn (0.24.2): 289 MiB

SVN repo including log files: 706 MiB [Remarkable but not relevant]

SVN repo with log files removed: 59 MiB

SVN repo with log files removed, compressed using gzip -9: 37 MiB

The SVN repository is almost three times the size of the CVS repository.
The main contribution is the strings db which is 58 MiB.

Is this normal? I though SVN would beat CVS, especially for binary files
such as these, not lose by a factor of three.
