The recent Git versions are developing the Sparse checkout capability.

This is being developed actively by the Microsoft team to cope with their "world's largest repository" The largest Git repo on the planet | Brian Harry's Blog[^] problem.

Certain aspects of Git can be daunting or surprising for a while because of its distributed capability. It doesn't 'control' rather it 'verifies' content, allowing devs to actually keep lots of rough drafts and interim versions without polluting the 'official' version (the devs polish their contribution that then is accepted...).

For normal code repos, the whole repo with all history is typically less that twice the size of the basic checkout (e.g. whole of Linux history..)
