In fact you only need the trunk branch.  With svn that would be:

svn co svn:// texinfo

It is much less than 1.3GiB (for a fresh checkout):
$ du -shx texinfo
225M    texinfo

It takes some time to checkout, though (real    2m31.220s  in my case).

Maybe git is much larger because it holds all the history, and not only
the last version as in svn.
