This is not true as I explained before. For copies the dump file will
only contain a reference to the copy. What the book is describing is
a more simple scenario. Say you add and commit a file and then make a
small change and commit again. In the repository, only the delta will
be stored for the second revision, but in the dump file it will dump
the full text of both revisions. However, for copies it will only
dump the reference to the copy.

Why don't you just create a simple small repository and test it?
