Ah, that's the pack file you are talking about :) Why do you care about it at all? It's internal to git and AFAIK there is no need to ever worry about it since git does the best it can to keep it small. If you really need then it sounds like you should explore `git repack` and `git unpack-objects`. I haven't played around with that myself yet, but hopefully someone else will be able to help if you have further questions. /M -- Magnus Therning OpenPGP: 0xAB4DFBA4 email: mag...@therning.org jabber: mag...@therning.org twitter: magthe http://therning.org/magnus Any fool can write code that a computer can understand.
