Hi Marcus, It’s unclear what your actual problem is. If you have trouble downloading 7GB at once due to a slow or flaky connection, you can fetch earlier git commits to finish the initial repository checkout, and then fetch more commits in batches. If you just want a subset of the repository, I recommend you use SVN instead of Git. (Maybe git supports sparse checkouts these days, i dunno). If you simply don’t like the repository layout or size, I don’t know how to put it politely, but it’s unlikely to change due to the low payoff and huge amount of work involved.
