While probably not changing that much, they are huge (6x~10MB for Nvidia and
one 52MB pack for ATI). The question is how gracefully git will handle such
amounts. On the other hand I saw that it seems to do some sort of binary diff even.
It certainly helps our sanity to have a git repo, so our packages are found and
can be handled the same. And hopefully my connection up is better now as I
remember an upload tried while still in Canada suffered from the huge amount of
data and had to be ass-kicked to the DC(s) first.
Andy, what would you think from the git side and Steve, you think this would
help your workflow?
When all other means of communication fail, try words!
