Description

Hi,

As you may already know, your git repo is ~380MB. This is quite big.
Some tools exist to massively shrink repos' size.
This one does a pretty good job: http://rtyley.github.io/bfg-repo-cleaner/.
It has been successful in other big projects.
For example lodash has reduced its repo size from 150MB to 5MB: https://github.com/lodash/lodash/issues/271#issuecomment-17975289.

Could you consider using such a tool?

Thanks!
