Hi,

I've tried to install phpMyAdmin from Git, but noticed the repository is quite huge.
The total download was 213MB, unusually large for a git repository.

I expect this is the result of the initial svn->git conversion, which didn't optimize the repository files.

After running `git gc --aggressive` the repository size is 64MB

Could you please get the repository optimized at the server?

    I tried but the SourceForge.net shell tells me "out of memory, malloc failed". I'll contact them.

    I've done that locally and reuploaded repo to sf.net.
