Follow-up Comment #1, patch #4429 (project freeciv): Have you tried using git to get the source tree instead? Many projects find that a git checkout (containing the entire history!) uses less disk space than just a SVN checkout.
You could even git clone --depth $N git://nearby.example.org/freeciv.git (for some small number N) if you really don't want the history. My clone of git://repo.or.cz/freeciv.git is about 700MB, and goes to about 850MB when built. Or, if you really wanted a partial checkout, something like git archive --remote=git://nearby.example.org/freeciv.git R2_4_17 common include server configure.ac Makefile.am etc. (BTW I use the git mirror at git://repo.or.cz/freeciv.git to keep up to date.) I'd like to strongly urge against strongly coupling the Freeciv workflow to SVN in order to accommodate building on constrained environments. It reads a bit like an "XY Problem" to me :-/ _______________________________________________________ Reply to this item at: <http://gna.org/patch/?4429> _______________________________________________ Message sent via/by Gna! http://gna.org/ _______________________________________________ Freeciv-dev mailing list Freecivfirstname.lastname@example.org https://mail.gna.org/listinfo/freeciv-dev
