Hey All!

Handling large files is a known issue with Git. I would like to know, if there are any solutions developed by Eclipse community.

We are migrating our old CVS repositories to Git. We have some projects, in which we need to store large JAR files (~40MB). We want to version those files (or at least their hashes), but we do not want to download the whole history (~400MB). We would like to download those file on demand. Is there any EGit based solutions for handling large files? I know about several, but they do not work with EGit, i.e. using smudge/clean filters. How are such big files handled in repositories hosted by eclipse.org?

Regards,
Piotr Tomiak

There is no such thing as download on demand in JGit/EGit at the moment.
I don't know if there is any special handling of such large files hosted by eclipse.org, ask webmaster@eclipse.org.
