 ### Git with automatic garbage collection
 
-Since git offers automatic garbage collection, we look for that, too. Keep in mind, that with automatic garbage collection the final repository was bigger than with garbge collection every 1000 commits, growing up to 5× the size of the repository after grbage collection (I did not investigate that further).

 Mercurial vs. git with automatic garbage collection (git gc --auto called after each commit, which makes the actions of Mercurial and Git feature equal): 
 
Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
