[iTowns-dev] Video in repo

I should clarify something: permanently keeping a copy of old master (or any
branch that contains this video) would prevent the problem to be resolved. So at
the end, every one of these branch should either get deleted or rebased for this
to have any effect. Then we'll let git gc do its work. Let me know if you think
that won't work.
