please increase size of ppa paelzer qemu-machine-type-dev

Asked by Christian Ehrhardt  on 2016-09-14

Hi,
I just found that after completing 2/3 packages I'm already at 95% with the default 2G.

So I expect things to break soon.
Could you please increase the size of ppa:
https://launchpad.net/~paelzer/+archive/ubuntu/qemu-machine-type-dev/+packages

4G could be enough, 8G surely are and would avoid that I have to request it again in a few hours/days.

While this was at least partially meant for debugging I think I can disable debug symbols for now and be good regarding the size on the next build after dropping the current packages that include them.

Yet increasing the limit would be great in case I need them later on.

Well it seems even with the assumption of an async delete the space is not freed.
Probably since the package I have to retain is referencing it.

If increasing to more space would be possible that would be great.
As mentioned I already disabled debug symbols, so further builds won't fill it up so fast.

Bumped to 8GB.

The cron job that frees space from deleted packages runs every six hours.

Thanks for increasing the size and also thanks for clarifying the help page on package deletion!
