Hi Bruno, I agree that there are files that are too big as you mentioned. Sometimes structures are being refactored like I did with the sensors.
The problem is that if you refactor one of these files, most PR requests will have merge conflicts. But this should not be seen as an impediment to increase the quality of Airflow’s code. Especially the models.py should be fairly easy to refactor and split into different files. This file grew due historical reasons. If you feel like picking up this task, I encourage you to create a Jira for it and start cracking.
