Re: [] Handling large files in Git repositories

I think that currently SWT and Equinox have similar issues. Those
projects have created separate repos for binaries to deal with that

However, in your case, I'd consider transforming inner jars into
separate bundles and make them available in a local repository for
development purposes. Eclipse Orbit project serves that purpose at
Eclipse foundation.
