I have a git repository, which master is empty and a branch contains
android 5.0.0_r1. (Yes, I packed all android git repository into one).
Now I want to push android 5.0.2_r1 into the repository. I checkout the
master git an empty work place. Then create a new branch called
android_5.0.2_r1, put all file in it, add all file then commit.
I found I have got a twice large size repository. This means even most the
files are the same, git still store them as a new object. Just wonder why?
There are still some other questions. I already push the new branch to my
Gerrit server. When I found the repository size doubled, I just delete that
beanch from WebUI. Still the repository remains its size even I run git gc.
How can I remove the branch and its commit completely?
