    Sorry I still haven’t brought lists.canonical.org back up. Will do soon.

    There’s one important error in this article: I asserted that Git doesn’t do delta compression. This is wrong. Git does do delta compression. This improves the compression it gets significantly. Concatenating versions and gzipping gets you most of the benefit of doing delta compression, but not all of it (if you gzip the deltas, as Git does).
