Git Hook script to prevent large binary blobs being checked in
It has already occurred in the past in
testsuite.git repo, that executables were checked in by accident, and caused the Git history to get bloated.
In order to avoid such accidents in the future a Git hook script in the style of this might be useful, but taking also into account the size, and/or possibly with a magic safeword to be put in the commit message, to override the check for a single commit, if the author really knows what (s)he's doing.
