I highly doubt the Linux kernel is the biggest project.
IIRC WebKit has more objects, more files, etc. Its repository's
compressed form is >4G.
I know of at least some proprietary repositories with 96G in them. Not
much history, but a lot of binary blobs around 128M each doesn't
compress well. And bup wasn't used so we didn't get very good
compression over the files.
