RE: Hook to limit file size

I've seen that, and it would work. However, wouldn't that use a lot of
server resources. I'm not an expert on these things (kind of thrown into
it), but it looks to me like that command will stream the entire file
through a byte counter. For smaller files that wouldn't be a problem,
but I have users who regularly commits 10-30Mb and even more.

My point is that this information is already available on the local file
system at commit time. Why can't it be transferred to the repository. It
shouldn't add more than a couple of bytes to each file transmitted, and
if would save a lot of server time compared to the approach mentioned
