Have you had any luck using git-annex before? (Sometimes we get tired of reading bug reports all day and a lil' positive end note does wonders)

Fabulous technology, and we really depend upon it to version and move large files (software packages, OS images, multimedia files) and associated git versioned meta-data. Thank you!
