Starting today, you will see warnings if you push large files to your GitHub repository. Git is not well suited to large binary files, and we have some recommendations about better ways to handle them.

We will also reject pushes which add or modify files that are larger than our generous hard limit.

Please see the Help article for more details, including Git's technical limitations, and the specific limits.
