git-bigfiles - Git for big files

git-bigfiles is our fork of Git. It has two goals:

  • make life bearable for people using Git on projects hosting very large files (hundreds of megabytes)
  • merge back as many changes as possible into upstream Git


git-bigfiles already features the following fixes:

  • git-p4: fix abysmal performance when importing medium-sized files (opration now up to 8000 times faster)


Clone the git-bigfiles repository:

git clone git://

The main Git repository is constantly merged into git-bigfiles. See the git-bigfiles repository on
