|Re: [eclipse.org-committers] Handling large files in Git repositories|
You can also create a separate branch (or even a separate root) which contains the binaries - as long as you never merge the commits into the master branch clones won't pick it up. But the separate repository also guarantees that you never mix and match and can lead to better plans on future (eg orbit).
