Is there anyway to save space when having large tarballs? Our
/srv/obs/source/kernel-source directory is 28GB. On any change to
kernel-source a new tarball gets submitted, which takes up maybe 50MB,
but there could be a change of maybe one file. Are there any plans to
have this more compactable in the future?

That's not easy to do because the tarballs are normally compressed
so that binary diffs don't work.
