Sourceforge will purge our builds

Post by impaktor »

robn notified us that Sourceforge told him they will remove our old builds on sourceforge. He will not take any action, thus it will default to purge.

Do we want to preserve any of these builds?

If so, to where?

That's a good question!

I wonder how big all of them are?

EDIT: 74.9 GB, not too bad for me to archive locally for now so none are lost, but long term... do we want them?

I can also add other users for future help in case I get hit by a bus or something

I reckon we "need" only save 1 win + linux + mac build / year, or something.

If I remember correctly, robn did builds every night, or every time stuff was merged. I remember we had the "luxury" problem of only being able to make one release / day (since release was date stamped). Thus I can imagine there are a lot of builds close in time.

They're not quite spaced out like that sadly, 335 builds across 3 platforms.

I've downloaded them all so I do have them all backed up if we wanted to restore them somewhere in future.

This project has a 5GB total file size limit, but is currently using 74.9 GB. Below is a list of large files that don't get much download activity.
Oops :D

I purged most of the builds as discussed on IRC.

Left behind are the original win32, linux32, and linux64 builds from 2014.
As well as all of the builds downloaded during October.

We can discuss cleaning up those in the future.
