git question about disk space

If one has a free github account and clones the llvm-project repo into their account, what is the impact on their disk quota? The llvm-project is huge but if one only changes a few files, does all the rest count against their quota or is some copy-on-write mechanism sharing the disk space amongst all cloners?

thanks, brian

I don't think GitHub has disk quotas:

But what about this quote from that page:

It’s almost impossible to reach 100GB with code. You’d have to be using it for other media which is what github is trying to avoid presumably. You won’t get anywhere near these limits so you’re safe to fork llvm without worries.

Best,

This seems to me to be limits per repository, not a global limit on your account.
The LLVM repo is <1GB at the moment.
