Large .world files and git

Hey everyone,

I'm currently migrating an older ROS project to git and I noticed some pretty big .world files. Not, I'm not sure if these larger XML files should be added to the repository. Just to get a grasp: most of these files are around 3-5 MB, some are around 40 MB and the biggest file is roughly 87 MB.

What's the best practice in such a case? Add them to the repository or store them externally?

Thank you for your help.

I've used git-lfs a few times to get the best of both worlds

Okay, I thought that maybe non-binary files can be handled differently, but I'm okay with git-lfs. Thank you for you input.
