That's correct, the repo size for src should be well under 2.0GiB but
could be larger locally if you still have unused refs as can still
happen with the conversion producing different commit hashes every once
in a while.

doc should be less than 500M and ports also under the 2GiB mark. It all
depends a bit on how good the repo was repacked, so I can only give
ballpark figures.
