If we want this to be sustainable in the long term, it would be excellent if there were a way to shrink/regraft at a later date, so that we can ditch checkins from say > 6 months ago, or when the size exceeds a certain amount. If this is only for devs, then I guess they can do it manually, but if we're ever going to contemplate moving to git instead of rsync for normal use, then we should think now about whether we can shrink the repo automatically without necessarily tossing out their old tree. Do we know if that's possible at the moment?
