 From the horse's mouth:

"We recommend repositories be kept under 1GB each. This limit is easy to 
stay within if large files are kept out of the repository. If your 
repository exceeds 1GB, you might receive a polite email from GitHub 
Support requesting that you reduce the size of the repository to bring 
it back down."
