readline-ext repository is huge
Today I've cloned (my fresh new fork) of readline-ext
+ $ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:graywolf/readline-ext.git Cloning into 'readline-ext'... remote: Enumerating objects: 3, done. remote: Counting objects: 100% (3/3), done. remote: Compressing objects: 100% (3/3), done. remote: Total 389416 (delta 0), reused 1 (delta 0), pack-reused 389413 Receiving objects: 100% (389416/389416), 167.29 MiB | 2.83 MiB/s, done.

~170 MB repository just for readline gem is way too huge. It is caused
by presence of following tags in the repository:
v1_0_r2 v1_8_7 v2_0_0_rc1 v2_1_0_rc1 v2_2_0_rc1 v2_7_0_preview1 v2_7_0_preview2 v2_7_0_preview3 v2_7_0_rc1 v2_7_0_rc2
Deleting them and running
$ git tag --delete v1_0_r2 v1_8_7 v2_0_0_rc1 v2_1_0_rc1 v2_2_0_rc1 v2_7_0_preview1 v2_7_0_preview2 v2_7_0_preview3 v2_7_0_rc1 v2_7_0_rc2 Deleted tag 'v1_0_r2' (was 3db12e8b23) Deleted tag 'v1_8_7' (was c36252fca2) Deleted tag 'v2_0_0_rc1' (was ca6ccd436b) Deleted tag 'v2_1_0_rc1' (was 9881a183bd) Deleted tag 'v2_2_0_rc1' (was 050b43acce) Deleted tag 'v2_7_0_preview1' (was c55db6aa27) Deleted tag 'v2_7_0_preview2' (was 02aadf1032) Deleted tag 'v2_7_0_preview3' (was b563439274) Deleted tag 'v2_7_0_rc1' (was 8a40dce0ff) Deleted tag 'v2_7_0_rc2' (was 75acbd5f00) $ git gc --aggressive --prune=now Enumerating objects: 1505, done.

gets the repo down to few hundred kilobytes. So imho you should really drop
those tags since there is no need to hold whole ruby source code in this
repository. Just something to consider.
