Why are they hosting the PDF(s!) files on GitHub? Git shouldn’t (ideally) be used to distribute final binaries or binarish-documents, but the sources. The Book itself can then be hosted on archive.org or some similar website.
How frequently do you think this pdf file will change?
No, my point was that they couldn’t upload it all in one part, but had to split it into two, since GitHub didn’t let them host it all in one file.
Ahhhh. Thanks for the clarification.
The hint was “lisp classic.” It’s a 1992 text that’s considered a historical work on old-school styles of AI and LISP programming. It’s probably frozen in time past maybe source corrections. Shouldn’t hurt anything putting the PDF there.
Probably because it doesn’t matter and it’s convenient and easy to keep them with the code.
If it’s really bothering you there’s an ebook or you can concatenate it into a single PDF:
