It is worth noting that what you need to restore a git repository is the 
contents of the .git directory. (A bundle, presumably, is that same data 
but arranged differently.)

The size of a reasonably clean (after git gc) fgdata .git directory
is about 5889 MB currently. Larger than a DVD, but not too bad for 
moving with a USB stick or similar.

And, of course, that contains the data for all releases until now.
