NPM and Git LFS 

NPM (Node Package Manager) doesn't normally work well with Git LFS when installing a package directly from a Git repo. Because it creates a local bare clone as a cache, then checks out in the target directory, Git LFS will be unable to pull objects.

This can be worked around using a .lfsinfo file, to indicate the absolute source URI for all LFS objects.

However, this means any time a npm install is done against this repo, npm/git will download ALL LFS blobs, even if they already exist in the target location.
