Not really. I cloned it again locally but now towards a bare
repository (a bare repository contains only the history, without the
checkout of a revision). Amazing as it seems, the whole Gnustep
history is then compressed to ~120 megabytes. First revision dates
back to 1994. Newest one is from yesterday.

The 4.7 gigabytes contains the Gnustep history plus the checkout of
one of the revisions, in this case the one from February 14th.
