You're probably half the storage space if you compressed the data, but certainly nothing like an order of magnitude reduction.

You can implement this yourself by registering a custom deserializer/serializer with the Django serialization framework, then using that with reversion. For example, subclass the existing JSON implemnetation to add compression.

Migrating your existing data will take a huge amount of time, however, so be aware.

I know this was asked yet not implemented. Our database is around 65GB and half of it is reversion tables. I think it would save considerable amount of space if it the json was compressed. What are others' experience on that? It may be the case that we need to prune older than some date, but I believe we may have to keep all the history.
