It just pulls in 3 packages, git, perl-Error, and perl-Git.

I also tried a 'yum clean all' on a fresh os822, and df -h actually reported loosing 1Mb of free space (so just running 'yum clean all' must still be generating some metadata all of its own).
You missed the point that perl is already currently installed on the
XO 1.5 due to inkscape. We're working to fix that, and inkscape isn't
shipped on the XO-1. There's downloaded size and installed size. rpms
are xz compressed.
