Please increase quota of ppa:baltix-members/ppa - we need support 3 LTS releases until 2017

Asked by Mantas Kriaučiūnas on 2016-09-11

Please increase quota of ppa:baltix-members/ppa , currently I can't copy packages from another PPA's :(
We need support 3 LTS releases (12.04, 14.04 and 16.04) until 2017 because in Lithuanian schools are lots of old computers and some packages, like libreoffice or 0ad-data use a lots of space, see
https://launchpad.net/~baltix-members/+archive/ubuntu/ppa/+packages

Btw, ppa:baltix-members/ppa contains lots of files, copied from another PPAs (this is needed for Baltix Ubuntu derivative distribution users to have tested good quality packages in one place), it would be nice if copied packages would not count in quota, because they already exist in other PPAs. Also we don't need debug (-dbg) packages, it would be nice if you remove *-dbg.deb from baltix-members PPA
baltix-members PPA has lots of very important updates and additional packages for our users, so, please be careful :)

Thanks,
Mantas Kriaučiūnas

You have packages going all the way back to Feisty in that PPA. I suspect that deleting all the packages for unsupported Ubuntu releases will free up a lot of space, but if there's still a problem then we can expand the quota.

Also, copied packages have to count at the moment: they use up physical disk space. We may be able to change that in future, but not at the moment.

We won't delete individual binary packages from your archive. If you want to delete them, then make new uploads that don't build them.

Packages for old Ubuntu releases in baltix-members PPA are very small, most space are used by packages for Ubuntu LTS releases, so, please expand the quota.

William Grant (wgrant) said : #4

I've increased your quota, but please clean up unneeded packages. For example, packages for series that have been obsolete for nearly eight years are probably no longer necessary.

Can you help with this problem?
