Missleading Error message: maximum file size
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Estimated Story Points


When trying to import a file with many revisions (Example) you get the error message:

The file you are currently trying to import exceeds the maximum file size limit.

This suggests that the file is to big (but it's not), whereas the total size of all revisions is to big.
