|Is there a script or binary file locking solution which works with git?|
Yes, I understand "that goes against the ideas of distribution!", but yet, it goes with exactly what's needed for some projects, and I'm interested if there is a reasonable way to manage binary assets alongside or nearly alongside code in a git repository. The binary assets don't have to "be in" the git repo, but they do have to end up in the same source tree.
Don't think "small art", think "Huge 3d models, long pdfs, etc".
And yes, I am aware of the solutions which just "generate these from text*.
I am not looking for those. I'm looking for solutions which neatly lock the files yet is integrated with git.
Additionally, I'm looking for something technical, not something merely communication based (i.e. emails stating don't touch X).
