+Storing or transferring the dumps of mirrorruns is very disk intensive.
+However, there is an awful lot of redundancy, since the difference between
+two mirrorruns of the same archive is very tiny.
+These tools help storing dumps in a git tree, which is pretty good at
+handling data with small differences accross many versions.
