Subject: [gentoo-dev] Reducing the size of distfiles for our mirrors
Date: Tue, 22 Jul 2003 13:01:16
1 Folks --
3 Please avoid placing files in our distfile mirroring system that are not
4 absolutely necessary. Yesterday, a 1.1GB file was dropped into it which
5 caused some of our mirrors to complain, especially when they discovered it
6 was a game file.
8 In the last few months, our distfiles mirror has grown nearly 100% in terms
9 of space requirements. Gentoo's increasing popularity also places greater
10 demands on our mirrors in terms of bandwidth requirements as well. We need
11 to do our share to be respectful of these limited resources and use them
12 only when absolutely necessary.
