Hi Martin,

Thanks, but my problem is not the difference between the size of the source 
in the git-repository and the tar-file made from the same source. Obviously 
tther will be differences depending on the compressing-algorithm used by 
tar and git.

My problem is the difference between 2 tar-files. One made from the source 
before committing and pushing, and the second tar, made from the same 
source after cloneing and checking-out. I would expect them to be the same 
size (apart from small differences due to .gitignore etc). But an 20% 
increase is too much !
