I'm sure this question has already been asked and answered, but didn't
quite know what to search for.

I maintain a darcs repository on my office computer, and a copy of it on
my laptop. I do a darcs pull every other night. I noticed that the
_darcs folder is nearly as large as the repository itself. I don't mind
this on my work machine, but would like to avoid this on my laptop.

All changes to the repository happen at work - I only do darcs pull on
my laptop. I only need the latest snapshot. Given this, what's the
smallest I can make the _darcs folder here? The ~260 MB repository is
inside a Dropbox folder - that's why I'm worried about size.
