Subject [jira] [Created] (INFRA-10826) Would like a pull/push --force for removing a 3 Mb binary file
Date Mon, 23 Nov 2015 18:13:11 GMT
Martin Desruisseaux created INFRA-10826:

             Summary: Would like a pull/push --force for removing a 3 Mb binary file
                 Key: INFRA-10826
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-10826
             Project: Infrastructure
          Issue Type: Wish
          Components: Git
            Reporter: Martin Desruisseaux
            Priority: Minor

A 3 Mb binary file has been committed on SVN in a branch of Apache SIS (https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/sis/branches/JDK8/)
and immediately mirrored on Git (git://git.apache.org/sis.git). I presume that we can not
delete that binary file from SVN history, but it would be nice (while not critical) to remove
that binary file from Git history for lighter clones by users. This commit has never been
merged to trunk or master.

A clone has been created on Github with two commits squashed:


The squashed commits cancel the inclusion of the binary files. Would it be possible to perform
a "push --force" of the JDK8 branch from this clone to git://git.apache.org/sis.git and to
https://github.com/apache/sis? We are stopping commits on SVN in the meantime.

If this issue can not be fixed, its okay. It is only a "would be nice" action.
