The model files in huggingface are very large and they all require run git clone lfs before actually git clone . I found .git/lfs has many large objects. Are those objects pertaining to old files/models only?
I removed the objects under .git/lfs and still can load the model from the local downloaded repo folder. So this makes me wonder if I just want to use current version of models, can the objects under .git/lfs safely be removed to save some disk space?
