request for size extension for repos containing backported Qt5

Asked by Thorsten Glaser


My staging repositories for Qt backports are exploding from size, just from Qt (and in the case of precise, gcc 4.8) alone:

I would like to kindly request a moderate size extension, so that at least one build fits. Perhaps 3 GiB each, or so. I don’t know yet how huge Qt will become.

They are called staging repositories because ① others can use them too, separately from their purpose in my place, ② I will copy the necessary packages to my MuseScore backports for Ubuntu LTS repository (which has already received a size extension, thanks, and is not likely to need more space for this) once they work.

Thanks in advance!

… oops, Qt5 is more huge than I thought.

That means I’m likely to need about 5 GB each in
and about 10 GB (instead of the current 8 GB) in
if possible. (If it helps, the data will likely be very shared, and I delete old content to make space.)
