Subject Re: 27MB odt file in svn

Hi Rob,

in my opinion a source control system should not be used to store binary 
objects. Quite probable multiple copies of the same binary are stored 
within the SVN system if you branch the source tree. Additionally the 
backup of SVN will grow as well.
It's better to have a fixed central place on a webserver to store such 
documents. The automation suite could load those documents via http 
request in the first run like a well prepared configure script.

Just my 2 € Cents...

Kind regards, Joost
