  *   Tickets ready to review

  Some of the open tickets are going to be review during the hackathon.

  *   Other questions:

Zach mentioned that the download size of the toolkit is inconveniently large due to the .git and .svn directories. Including this directories is ideal for developers that need all history and all commits but not for users that have no intentions to modify any of the code.
He is suggesting to add a third download option using a GitHub repository that doesn’t include .git and .svn registry . Steve suggest to have in this repo all the past releases.

Maria suggested that one can also provide the user with a leaner version of einsteintoolkit.th<http://einsteintoolkit.th> which does not include the tests and data files.

Roland : The ratio is about 700MB for the pure code vs 1.6GB including .git and .svn directories. Copied configs dir is about 1.8GB though so about as much as all the git checkouts.

The discussion will continue next week
