git gc on remote repo please

I've seen a fair share of people requesting a "git gc" on their remote repos, since this seems not possible via the userinterface I'm here also asking if someone from Atlassian could please give this a litle swirl.

I have three repos in a shared workspace that cause my ocd to kick in:

blu********am/s****************al.b***en.stl.git (currently showing as 288 MB)
blu********am/s****************al.g**t.kgv.git (currently showing as 62 MB)
blu********am/s****************al.g**t.stl.git (currently showing as 120.5 MB)

Hope this works, much appreciated!

Hi, @Jean-Paul, thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community.

I ran the GC against your repositories and managed to reduce their size. 

I also would like to share with you that we 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.

Feel free to share any additional questions or concerns regarding this case.

Kind regards,

Thanks, that worked! Watching the issue now.
