Git LFS (Large File Storage) is a Git extension, which reduces the impact of large files in your repository by downloading the relevant versions of them lazily. Specifically, large files are downloaded during the checkout process rather than during cloning or fetching..
This category is currently at the "Minimal" maturity level, and our next maturity target is "Viable" (see our definitions of maturity levels).
Key deliverables to achieve this are:
## Top Customer Success/Sales issue(s) TBD
The top user issue is gitlab-#15079, which aims to resolve a problem in which the Gitlab archiver doesn't honor Git-LFS references in a repository when it's streaming an archive to a user.
The top internal customer issues are related to limiting storage costs for gitlab.com. gitlab-#17711 will move this forward by beginning to prune unreferenced Git LFS objects.
The top vision item is gitlab-#14114, which will add the ability to set limits and quotas for Git LFS.
