Do you think it would be a good idea to have an option to turn off this
On one hand, the promise we make with largefiles is, "You'll only download
the largefiles you need." In order to do pretty much anything meaningful
with another head (merge, rebase, or update to it), you will need to
download these largefiles. So this doesn't really break that promise and
it fixes a workflow problem.
But I can imagine a situation, where you might not want this behavior -- if
you have a huge number of named branches, for example, with several large,
unique largefiles, and you are not sure when or if you will merge with any
If we think it would be a good idea to add an option for "don't cache
largefiles for new heads on pull", I'll be happy to do it.
