Depending on the version of your repository, not the version of your
server running, and the complexity of the test data it may even be
enough to activate representation sharing in your repo and may see a
dramatically reduce of the commit sizes of your tests. Even more with
Subversion 1.8 as a server as it find same representations of data
even within one commit, meaning that depending on your data even the
first commit could be reduced.


Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
