It is under 100 MB, which I guess is a bit much, though once you do the
1st checkout 99% of that won't change.

Technically if you just checked out the bin folder you would have all
the scripts and you don't necessarily need all the other stuff.
The folder name is app-data, which to me is any files the application
needs, so doc files seem to fit under there ok. It does need to be
somewhere easily findable on an osgeo server. We've had problems being
able to retrieve files from other places every time we need to build.

Why we still have 2 versions of it, seems to be oversight.

Thanks for raising the issue, not sure what the solution is right now.
Possibly to move that folder so that everything else can be pulled
