Request for garbage collection


We are having issues with garbage collection on one of our repositories, from the Outside the Fox workspace. The Repo is for the project Silicomrades.

We have enabled the Garbage collection feature in the labs, but even after we deleted the commit  that brought the repository over the limit (last friday, so even if there's a delay, that shouldn't be an issue), the garbage collection still did not happen, and we are still unable to push.

Can I please request a manual garbage collection, if that fixes the issue?

Thank you!

Hi, @Mikina! Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

I ran the GC against your repository and managed to reduce its size, could you please confirm if everything is working as expected now? 

We already have a feature request to allow users to mark repositories for git GC, as you can check here:

Please consider adding yourself as a watcher to receive the updates as we make progress with this. If you are not familiar with our Feature Request Policy, you can read more about it here.

Please feel free to let me know if you need anything further.

Kind regards,
