Looking into how to store things efficiently in #git I came across this SO answer: stackoverflow.com/a/8198276

At the end of that answer was this:
`git gc --aggressive`
So I tried that on my local copy of Linus' git repo ... and its size went from 5.1G to 3.4G 😮
It takes a bit of time and CPU power, but I just saved 1.7G without throwing anything away 😎

Apparently Zoom straight up lied about conferences being E2E encrypted, and didn’t tell anyone that they were passing personally identifiable data to Facebook & Google for years.
