compute various size metrics for a Git repository


git-sizer computes various size metrics for a Git repository, flagging those that might cause problems or inconvenience. For example:

 • Is the repository too big overall?
 • Does the repository have too many references (branches and/or tags)?
 • Does the repository include too many objects?
 • Does the repository include gigantic blobs (files)?
 • Does the repository include many slightly different large text files?
 • Does the repository include gigantic trees (directories)?
 • Does the repository have many identical files?
 • Does the repository include absurdly long path names?
 • Are there other bizarre and questionable things in the repository?
   • Annotated tags pointing at one another in long chains?
   • Octopus merges with dozens of parents?
   • Commits with gigantic log messages?

git-sizer can help to reveal the problems described above.
