If you need to distribute large files within your repository, you can create releases on GitHub. Releases allow you to package software, release notes, and links to binary files, for other people to use. For more information, visit "About releases."

We don't limit the total size of the binary files in the release or the bandwidth used to deliver them. However, each individual file must be smaller than 2 GB.

Tip: If you regularly push large files to GitHub, consider using Git Large File Storage (Git LFS). For more information, see "Versioning large files."
