I agree that it is probably easier to find some space to clear up under
build.squeak.org but I think the community as a whole has to give some
serious thought to the future of squeaksource.com.
It seems to me that at least a couple GB could be cleared up by
archiving some old dead projects (I have a couple I should do so with
but I doubt they amount to much) and migrating away more active ones.
Ideally the owners of those projects would stand up and volunteer
therefore avoiding a sequester-style across the board trim. Frankly I
think squeaksource.com must be closed to all writes and serve a purely
archive function, at best given the resources we have currently.
If someone else doesn't do so I may call for volunteers to archive and
move existing projects myself next week on squeak-dev. I'm hoping we
can at least come up with some space savings in the short term that will
give us some weeks to think and discuss.
Regarding moving squeaksource.com to another server: we do have another
server where there is more space but that is technically designated for
other purposes. The sad fact is that there is not a lot more space
available on box3 and box4 combined than we have on the old box2 server.
Server Total HD Size
Box2 146GB (aka squeak.org, lists.squeakfoundation.org, etc.)
The new additions build.squeak.org and squeaksource.com currently add up
to about 54GB. I think you will agree that the math here does not work out.
I guess my point is that moving squeaksource.com (to any other existing
server we have), as a solution, is only a temporary solution.
