Good morning,

recently a couple of large files were erroneously committed to the cctbx repository and then deleted thereafter. Git always keeps a full history, so to avoid cruft aggregating over time we decided to cut those files out of the repository history. Unfortunately this means everyone will have to do a couple of steps:

1.       Please ensure you have run libtbx.git_avoid_merges on all of your development machines

2.       Run git pull --rebase the next time you update your repository instead of git pull - again, do this on all development machines.

3.       If you keep any local branches you may need to rebase them onto master (git fetch; git checkout $branchname; git rebase origin/master)

If you don't follow these instructions you may end up recommitting those large files, and we have to start again.
