In an effort to clear a BiocCheck warning and reduce the size of our code base from 22MB to 7MB, I’d like to sync our recently cleaned git objects (using the same BFG tool as described below). I understand that I, as a maintainer, can not push these sorts of changes to the Bioconductor server. Can someone help with this sync?
