Of course. But git is supposed to be very efficient in storing history
and other things. I remembered when it first appeared when Linus was
still maintaining it, it could have the Linux kernel's source tree with
complete history and other things within 1.5 times the size of the net

Git gc won't help because 54M is the size of the first checkout.
