A complete git repo is usually smaller than a complete SVN one
(according to "common knowlege" - as in, I didn't run any benchmarks),
but one commonly only checks out the /trunk subdirectory in subversion,
while git usually checks out the whole project history, including all
branches - it could be a substantial amount of data you don't check out
with SVN.
