Subject: Why Git LFS is not a built-in feature
Date: Fri, 13 Nov 2020 13:15:52 +0330	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <CAD9n_qjKyxNjtd1YrcHzshLg0-vbwXkHRwMveXHAWSOXMWLKAg@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

Currently, having to set up git-lfs in each client and checking server
compatibility is a huge barrier for using it in the first place,
whilst it is generally a good practice to store large files in lfs.

As a consequence a lot of repos are not using it when they should.

Is there any reason that we don't have built-in support for such an
important feature?
