Repository Size Warning, but wrong size

Hi, we got that

remote: WARNING Repository size in Bitbucket is currently 1.9 GB
remote: Above the 2 GB size limit further commits are rejected
remote: Reduce repository size by removing large files from history
remote: HINT Learn how to reduce repository size:

But git count-objects says

$ git count-objects -v
count: 3980
size: 22040
in-pack: 270784
packs: 27
size-pack: 1021295
prune-packable: 172
garbage: 0
size-garbage: 0

From what I read, we need that kind of GC?

The repo is: /pictrsgmbh/pictrs/

Thanks and regards, Phil

Hi Phil,

I ran a git gc for this repo and its size is now 986.6 MB.

Please feel free to let me know if things are ok now and if you need anything further!

Kind regards,

Hi Theodora,

How about a “run GC”-button next to the repo size?

Best regards,

Hi Phil,

I understand that this would be useful, we have a feature request about this in our issue tracker:

I would suggest that you add your vote in that ticket (by selecting the Vote for this issue link) as the number of votes helps the development team and product managers better understand the demand for new features. You are more than welcome to leave any feedback, and you can also add yourself as a watcher (by selecting the Start watching this issue link) if you'd like to get notified via email on updates.

Implementation of new features is done as per our policy here and any updates are posted in the feature request.

Please feel free to let me know if you have any other questions.

Kind regards,

@Theodora Boudale I have the same Issue I am unable to push my changes
