I don't know about git but Subversion does quite a good job on some
$ svn export http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/tags/1.9.5
How big are the tarballs?
$ ls -lh foo*
How big in the repository?
$ ls -lh repo/db/revs/0/
Saving about 2M. But we can do better if we do compression knowing that
$ tar cf foo1.tar 1.9.5
The resulting tarballs are little bigger:
-rw-r--r-- 1 pm pm 16M Aug 4 13:05 foo1.tar.gz
but Subversion can do better deltification:
-r--r--r-- 1 pm pm 16M Aug 4 13:05 repo/db/revs/0/1
We have stored two 15MB compressed tarballs in a 21MB repository.
