Sure.  If you click on the ‘0 releases’ line at the top of the page, you’ll got to a page that has a ‘draft a new release’ button.  From here, you can generate a release associated with a tag and upload any binary versions (e.g. the RPMs).

That's it! Done. I've removed Packages directory from master branch. Thank you.

For future reference: unless you rewrite git history (difficult for you, confusing for anyone that already git cloned your repo, etc) or people obtain a shallow copy instead of a full git clone, these still take up space in the repository. That is: they will be fetched in a git clone as they existed in the repo at *some* point.

Another thing to keep in mind is that compressed binary resources will be poorly diffed and compressed by git.
Indeed. I've checked it. It's useful information, thank you.
