You probably need to use "git filter-branch" or maybe BFG
(http://rtyley.github.io/bfg-repo-cleaner/) to rewrite history as if the
big files had never been committed.  But beware of the warnings about
rewriting history--for example, any collaborators will have to rebase
their branches onto the new history.
