The size of my local clone of the repo is 153M.

The other packages can be found on websvn.kde.org, but there seem to be
plans to migrate everything to git.

If you're not familiar to git, the following commands will probably help
you:
$ git pull
Updates the local repository and merges the upstream modifications with
the local ones (similar to svn up).
$ git diff
Computes the patch between the files in your local repo and the ones in
your filesystem (similar to svn diff).
The fundamental difference between git and svn is that with git, if you
clone for example the Trinity git repo, your local clone will be the
same kind of repo that the upstream one, and you can (for example)
commit to it.
