Pywikibot finished GIT migration. Now a question has anybody ever
tryed to clone and use the e.g. the pywikibot/compat repo on the
TS? If I do, I get and .git folder of about 200MB which nearly
fills my home quota. (this is the plain clone - nothing done
to/with it yet!!)

Yes of course there is a solution - but it again one thing that can go
wrong and another paramter you have to remeber and use. By the way it
would be a good thing if it would be possible to develop from TS also.
And then all the 200MB are needed, aren't they?
Yes I could do 'git gc' I could also switch to
using SVN from
github (but needs to handle all externals manually)...
So... what was acutally the reason for switching to GIT? Despite
the fact that I have to enter about 1 million different commands
now (in SVN I needed 5 ... maybe 10 - 1 command per action, in GIT
I need about 5-10 command PER action) I am dealing 75% of my time
with GIT issues (that SVN did not have)...

As mentioned on mediawiki you should in fact first create a branch.
And I don't thinkg that just +2 all your own commits makes sense,
becuase then we weould not have to use git review at all and could
just push the stuff.
In fact I am not able to to USE or further develop the
since the migration - and I am SERIOUSLY thinking about setting up
an own copy on sf.net
<http://sf.net> again and work there... (then
we would also have the bug-tracker back in the same place) At the
moment I see just 2 drawbacks:

Yes, but git sucks too. At the moment I CAN work with svn (and sf.net
but alternatives are very welcome) but I have to use A LOT OF
WORK-A-ROUNDS to do so with git.
It's all about work-load; all the migrations, changes and stuff taking
place at the moment just stops me of doing my work. I should bug fix
and develop bots for wikidata and commons, instead I have to migrate
to Labs and GIT. And as it looks like git will - even if it works
perfectly - just increase workload compared to svn.
