I created this account specifically to post this because it's very important: @marlonZA Is correct. It WILL catch up to you eventually; please stop the violence and don't commit binaries and vendors.

I worked at a shop where our VCS was very ad-hoc and had people committing binaries, NuGet packages (C#'s version of Composer), logs etc... Our 15-project repository was ~120GB in 2-3 years. Backups took 6-8 hours because of the sheer number of files to be backed up, no one knew where anything was and training 6-8 people on "Don't commit vendors and binaries" was an absolute nightmare. Don't do it!
