Re: Huge number of rev files in in svn repository

Another interesting tidbit.

Mozilla CVS is 3.0GB
Same repository in svn is 8.2GB
Same repository in git is 680MB

git does deltas and then compresses the deltas all into one giant
680MB file. New commits are stored in collections of single files
until the repository is packed again.

I suspect svn is large because it is using 450K files each of which
has a minimum allocation size in ext3. CVS only uses 117K files.
Packed git uses less than 5,000.
