Sorry Bob.  My memory is clearly underperforming.  I think it's at least the third time now that I make this mistake.

For the curious, elpa.gnu.org doesn't just host static files, it also builds them (and serves them via HTTP, using the layout expected by the ELPA "protocol").

Just a stupid question: why not host those archives on ftp.gnu.org and Savannah download area, respectively?

Hello Stefan,  Savannah does not host VMs.  I assume that elpa.gnu.org is one of the other VMs hosted by the FSF.  Therefore we can only close this ticket as impossible for us to do anything about.  Sorry.

Please make your request to -email is unavailable- instead.

Hi,

The GNU ELPA and NonGNU ELPA sites hosted by `elpa.gnu.org` have grown substantially (not just because of the added packages, but also because of the addition of `-devel` variants of those archives).

It was originally allocated a 10GB partition which has been plenty so far, but it is becoming a concern.  I have made some room by erasing the /var/cache/apt/archives files and don't foresee a serious space problem for the next few months, but increasing the space to 15 or 20GB would be welcome so I don't have to worry about it.
