As I understand it, you can reduce the size of a repository by
removing from it branch names and tag names that you do not need, then
running "git gc" to purge from the repository objects that no longer
have a named reference to them.

What you cannot do is remove any of the history of any branch whose
head you want to have in the repository -- every commit reqires the
presence of its predecessor commit(s).

There are probably advanced techniques that get around the latter
restriction, but I don't know what they are.
