Quota increase for X2Go PPAs

Asked by Mihai Moldovan on 2019-12-16


Our PPAs at https://code.launchpad.net/~x2go/+archive/ubuntu/ppa/+packages , https://code.launchpad.net/~x2go/+archive/ubuntu/stable/+packages and to some degree https://code.launchpad.net/~x2go/+archive/ubuntu/saimaa/+packages are pretty loaded, some even overloaded.

We have been using these PPAs for almost a decade (I think) and did fine with the default 2 GB quota so far.

However, I think I enabled some additional debug packages last year which are pretty big and hogging up disk space more than usually.

Can I request an increase to a disk quota of 5 GB each for these three PPAs?

You have quite a lot of packages for obsolete Ubuntu series in there. Do you think you could remove those, please? vivid, wily, yakkety, zesty, artful, and cosmic are all no longer security-supported.

I was under the impression that launchpad would delete packages for older series automatically, but it looks like I have to do this manually instead. Will do so shortly.

Colin Watson (cjwatson) said : #3

OK. Let us know if you still need a quota increase after that (bearing in mind that it may take a few hours until garbage collection gets round to running after you delete things).

Mihai Moldovan (ionic) said : #4

I've deleted all packages for the obsolete series.

Quotas are now at ~70, ~50 and ~25 %.

I could go ahead and also delete superceeded packages for the active series, which should further cut down on repository sizes, but that would also mean that users can't downgrade if problems arise.

What's your opinion on this?

This question was expired because it remained in the 'Needs information' state without activity for the last 15 days.

Colin Watson (cjwatson) said : #6

You don't need to delete superseded packages for active series manually, and that isn't something we would encourage; they'll be garbage-collected automatically after a while.

I've given https://code.launchpad.net/~x2go/+archive/ubuntu/ppa/+packages a bit of a bump. The others seem comfortable enough.

Can you help with this problem?
