Michael Joyce created INFRA-7464:

             Summary: OCW needs git pack files cleaned
                 Key: INFRA-7464
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-7464
             Project: Infrastructure
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: Git
            Reporter: Michael Joyce

Hi Infra,

OCW's new git repo has a good deal of bloat in the pack files. There were a number of large
binaries checked in at one point along with files/presentations/misc. stuff left over from
the donation of the repo. The repo ends up being about 550 MB in size and a number of users
aren't even able to do an initial clone of repo. It times out for some and for others it just
takes a ridiculously long time.

We've used [1] to clean the repo and push the changes up to a fork on Github for testing.
We were happy with the results (dropped the repo down to ~4 MB) and we wanted to push the
changes up to the ASF, however the pre-receive hooks are denying our pushes (forced or otherwise).

Can you run [1] on the repo and push the changes up? The exact command we've used was [2]
for reference.

[2] java -jar bfg.jar --strip-biggest-blobs 700 climate/
