I also avoid adding binary files to git repositories since they tend to
make the repo really big in a short time (there's no delta compression
etc). One workaround is to create a new branch to commit those pdfs and
once in a while (say once per year) delete and recreate the 'pdf'
branch. In essence the 'pdf' branch becomes more of a storage space
rather than revision control.
