You're right, it was the previous version (v1) that Cleber tested using my own machine URL's.

I was actually not sure whether I should or should not have added the Tested-by/Reviewed-by tags in such scenario.
The content had to be changed due to the outcome of our discussion but also I thought I don't want to silently drop
the tags since Cleber invested his time into it too.

What should I do here, next time?


Nope, and I'm having issues with those URLs.  For instance:

   $ curl -L https://github.com/nieklinnenbank/QemuArtifacts/raw/master/cubieboard/linux-image-dev-sunxi_5.75_armhf.deb
   version https://git-lfs.github.com/spec/v1
   oid sha256:a4b765c851de76592f55023b1ff4104f7fd29bf90937e6054e0a64fdda56380b
   size 20331524

Looks like it has to do with GitHub's behavior wrt quota.

Indeed. Just this morning I received an e-mail from github with the following text:

"[GitHub] Git LFS disabled for nieklinnenbank

Git LFS has been disabled on your personal account nieklinnenbank because you’ve exceeded your data plan by at least 150%.
Please purchase additional data packs to cover your bandwidth and storage usage:


Current usage as of 24 Feb 2021 09:49AM UTC:

  Bandwidth: 1.55 GB / 1 GB (155%)
  Storage: 0.48 GB / 1 GB (48%)"
I wasn't aware of it but it appears that Github has these quota's for the Large File Storage (LFS). I uploaded the files in the git LFS
because single files are also limited to 100MiB each on the regular Git repositories.

With those strict limits, in my opinion Github isn't really a solution since the bandwidth limit will be reached very quickly. At least for the
LFS part that is. I don't know yet if there is any limit for regular access.

My current ideas:
  - we can try to splitup the larger files into sizes < 100MiB in order to use github regular storage. and then download each part to combine into the final image.
    im not really in favour of this but it can work, if github doesnt have any other limit/quota. the cost is that we have to add more complexity to the acceptance test code.
  - we can try to just update the URLs to armbian that are working now (with the risk of breaking again in the near future). Ive also found this link, which may be more stable:
  - or use the server that im hosting - and i don't mind to add the license files on it if needed (should be GPLv2 right?)

I'd be interested to hear your opinion and suggestions.

Kind regards,

- Cleber.
