We're going to have lots of branches and merges.

In terms of repo size, we were going to be slicing the history into two parts: - fresh start - historical The 'fresh start' is what new commits will go on top of, and ranges 40-120MB depending on what git window compression is used. The historical is ~1.2GB, and if you want a continuous history, you just use graft to merge the two. -- Robin Hugh Johnson Gentoo Linux: Developer, Trustee & Infrastructure Lead E-Mail : robbat2@g.o GnuPG FP : 11ACBA4F 4778E3F6 E4EDF38E B27B944E 34884E85
