Import repositories with large files

You can now import repositories from Subversion, Mercurial, and TFS that include files larger than 100 MB using the GitHub Importer.

detecting and importing

This new ability is powered by Git LFS. When the repository you are importing has files larger than 100 MB you can opt-in to using LFS to store those large files or opt-out and the files will simply be removed from your repository during the import.
