TL;DR

If you see error: failed to push some refs to 'https://dev.azure.com/...' use the following workaround and try again.

git config http.version HTTP/1.1

Last tested with git version 2.32.0 and git-lfs version 2.13.3 on Mac OS X 10.14.6 Mojave.

Explanation

Azure Dev Repos is a wonderful place to version control Logic projects, because it has unlimited storage and support LFS.1

A particularly large project (20 GB, largest file 225 MB) was failing to push to the server. I’ve seen two variations of this error: either an HTTP 413 or an HTTP 503 error while pushing a project. To add salt to the wound, it was happening in the final 1%.

$ git push --set-upstream origin master
Uploading LFS objects:  99% (678/686), 18 GB | 2.0 MB/s, done.
Fatal error: Server error: https://username@dev.azure.com/my-logic-project/info/lfs/objects/1181a8d96cf25bb980a9d59130420a12d50a9b08905135217d7ac77fda10a14f from HTTP 503

error: failed to push some refs to 'https://dev.azure.com/my-logic-project'

Apparently this is a known problem, specific to Azure Dev Repos only.2 The workaround is to downgrade the HTTP protocol used by Git so that the large files go through.

$ git push --set-upstream origin master
Uploading LFS objects: 100% (686/686), 20 GB | 2.6 MB/s, done.

$ 

I would recommend issuing the command without the -g flag, so that the http.version override is local to the git project only. If needed, revert changes using git config --unset http.version.
