If you have a version of APR with this problem (I think most/all 0.9.x
versions do) then it cannot handle an individual file that is > 2GB.
However, since fsfs stores each revision as a single file, you would get
this problem if a single commit resulted in a repository file > 2GB.

I think the main thing will be to avoid an individual commit that is >

There is no problem with the total size of the repository being greater
than 2GB.
