I don't know how you count but I count 1023 lines between first
"git remote add mga" until last "initscripts-9.31-1 -> initscripts-9.31-1"
(for a grand total of 1122 lines)

But even if it was 700, that would still be too big

Well there is: I'd to scroll down your 1000+ lines just to see if
there was anything
else after the logs...
If it would have been a log file, I wound't have to.

We don't speak about patch review but about repeteaed contents over
1000+ lines.

This is off topic BS.
Of those 1000+ lines, 814 were the same sendmail message again & again!
What's the point of repeating it over 800+ lines?
If someone was interesting in "reviewing" them, having 5 lines
would have been enough.
