[iTowns-dev] Video in repo

Hi there!

Quick question with the release in sight: a video of 24M has been added (in
aabc913) and removed later (in b321c01) in the repository. This makes the clone
of the repository quite long even though the video is not in master any more.
Should we rewrite the history to get rid of it?

It's possible, but it implies a force-push on master. It means that everybody
will need to use "git rebase --onto master <commit-range>" for all their
branches after this push is done and force-push them (and maybe a git reset
--hard on their local master, I'm not sure how clever git is nowadays).

It's a low risk process (we'll keep a copy of the old master around), but it's a
bit of a hassle and requires synchronization between us. I believe it is
possible, but if we want to do it, we'd better do it now, before success hits us
hard and we have thousands of contributors (yeah, I'm an optimistic kind of guy
;-) )
