Github Repository Size in API

Hi all,

I have recently tried to make a repository smaller using BFG repo cleaner. Been working on my own fork here:

Seems like it worked in that the repo now is <70 MB when cloning down from about 1.1 GB or so:

Receiving objects: 100% (86358/86358), 66.88 MiB | 8.45 MiB/s, done.

But the API still reports "size": 419143: I saw in other places that the size field is not very trustworthy so maybe that’s the answer here?

Best wishes,

it is also different now,


maybe it will take time to update or it’s in your cache,

Thanks! I see. Looks like there was just some delay with updating it. I see the same now
