The git-config manual page says:

           [...]  The default is unlimited.

So it seems to me that it is unlikely that pack.packsizeLimit is
affecting memory usage.

On the other hand, the only repository I have that has had memory
problems being repacked is configured:

                windowMemory = 500m

Is it possible that "pack.packsizelimit=2g" is causing the Git code to
process in a different manner, one in which Git allocates 2G of

It would be simple to test whether removing that parameter fixes the

When I execute the clone (on Fedora Linux), I see no indication of
memory usage that is this large.
