8.5G seems to be the space needed on the server, *not*
on your local machine. For example, HEAD seems to
take 396M with CVS and 945M with SVN on one of the
PCs I tested (comparing "du -sh" output).

Note that each of the silly little files like "format",
"README.txt", etc. within the ".svn" folder take
up 4K each on partition I tested - the "README.txt"
files alone take up 6M in the checked-out "trunk"
sources.

Of course, the biggest savings would perhaps come
from not storing the "text-base" copies and letting
non-jet-setter hackers have the option of taking
the slight penalty of a lag when they do a diff
in exchange for a much reduced disc-space requirements.

Thanks,
Ranjit.
