You should strip all the binaries and PDFs from the tarball. This is a common issue in Debian (think of java packages where most of upstreams embed *.jar files). To do this, please create a "get-orig-source" target in debian/rules, which should do all the needed steps to obtain a source-only (and *free*!) tarball. Also, your package should have a "special" version. Let's say it is version 1.0-1, it should become 1.0+ds-1 (+ds means "debian source" -- and 1.0+ds-2, 1.0+ds-3, and so on). You should take care of mangling the source version in debian/watch as well (read about dversionmangle). Once you've stripped all of those things, I believe the tarball will have a reasonable size to be committed ;) Also, since you're going to use git, please read about pristine-tar to store orig tarballs inside the repository itself. I'm available if you need help about the repackaging :) Ciao, David -- . ''`.
