CVSNT has this as well (use -kBz). Git: http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/git-repack.html Cvsnt: http://cvsnt.org/manual/html/Substitution-modes.html I've no idea how CVSNT's binary diff and compression compares with what GIT uses, however one difference is that with CVSNT is that for maximum disk-cost savings you need to decide what options you are using when you add the file 'the first time' wheras the 'git repack' command allows you to do this arbitrarily at a later point in time.
