Looking at the disk space used by one of my packages, it looks like nearly ⅔ is taken up with
$ du ... 297400 ./.git 190584 ./docs 448 ./src 600 ./test ...
Although it’s not a problem for me (and “We all have lots of disk space these days” - Stefan) it might be a problem in some environments, such as JuliaBox, where disk space is valuable.
So can this
.git stuff be trimmed, slimmed down, or reduced in any way?
(I’ve already run a few basic git commands such as
git gc --aggressive --prune=all. It made very little impact.)
