just for fun, I put together a small script which performs a shallow and
sparse clone of the langtools sub-parts of the JDK repo (it is sometimes
very handy to be able to work on a subset of the JDK, to minimize clone
time and disk space).
The script is here:
Depending on whether the 'depth ' option is specified or not (and how
big it is), the overall size of the repo goes from ~200M (with depth =
1) to ~350M (without depth - e.g. no shallow clone).
