Request for more PPA size

Asked by falkTX on 2015-01-23

One of my team's PPAs reached the initial 2Gb limit:
https://launchpad.net/~kxstudio-debian/+archive/ubuntu/libs

We use this PPA to build static libraries (plus a few other utilities like wine).

We'd love if the size could be increased.
Thanks very much in advance!

Why do you need all those static libraries?

falkTX (falk-t-j) said : #2

To build "generic" binaries in a chroot for later release.

There's quite a few apps that I build with those, but it mainly focuses on audio.
Qtractor, LMMS, MusE, Rosegarden, etc

The static builds are specially useful for audio plugins that would otherwise share code that might not be thread-safe.
A good example is fftw3, see https://github.com/FFTW/fftw3/issues/16
Having these libs as static means the audio plugins are less likely to crash the host software.

Done.
