Exclude unverifiable files


Binary and other types of files, which are often not audited for security purposes, should not be stored in the source code repository.


Binary files usually have a file size greater than their source counterpart, which can eventually affect a repository performance. Changes done to them are often hard to track for versioning tools or make no sense for a reviewer. Furthermore, security audits on binary files are more complicated or simply not performed, and these could contain serious vulnerabilities such as backdoors, rootkits and exposed sensitive information.
