Do Screenshots in Pull Request Comments Count Against Size Limit?

If someone posts an screenshot in a comment of a pull request, does that image size count against the repository limit of 2 GB?

Hello @Patrick Sharbaugh,

Thanks for reaching out.

No, 2GB limit is for the size of Git/Hg repository itself, not for the metadata like PRs and comments. Simply put, it's the size of what you get after a full repository clone.

Let me know if you have any questions.


Thank you @Daniil Penkin, is there any other limit that metadata goes against?  A concern has been raised that my team should be cognizant of too much metadata since it goes against our quota.  I have been searching the documentation but cannot find what quota that might be.

No, there're only three kind of quotas related to size of things I think:

  • single repository size – 2GB
  • LFS, large file storage – depends on your plan and counts across entire account rather than per repository. Only makes sense if you use Git LFS, obviously.
  • Downloads – this is an area where you can store some files next to your repository but not under version control system, these files are stored in S3. Limit here is 1GB per file.

No metadata is counted into the quota.
