I think my Julia package dir is too large. When I tried to copy this directory to another PC, I noticed that the .git directories were taking too long because they contain a large number of files.
In a typical package, the .git sub-directory contains about 90% of the files. Note that I am not talking about the size of the directories in bytes, just the file count. This makes it very hard to copy. Is it possible to reduce the number of files in Julia package’s dir? I mean, the .git dirs only contain source control stuff, which is not needed for the package to work, right?
Is it safe to delete the .git directories?
