Hi again Adrelanos,

(Switching to savannah-hackers.)

    I am a maintainer of Whonix.
    What is maximum allowed file size savannah non-gnu?

As previously replied, I'm not so worried about file size, as long as
you don't try to keep every (or any) old versions.  I see 68G free
(130G) used on the download partition now.

    How much traffic can you handle?  Next Whonix version has ~3 GB file
    size and the current version has ~1000 downloads per week and who
    knows how many people will try it out when next version is
    announced. It is still hosted on sourceforge and before I upload it
    to savannah, I wanted to ask if you can handle the load.

Most definitely not!  We can't undertake to be a principal distribution
(or hosting) point for a whole distro.  I was under the impression from
your submission that we were just going to host your build scripts,
documentation, etc., which we are glad to do.

I can't find it now, sigh, but there used to be some statement in the
requirements about how we cannot host whole distros, we just don't have
those kind of resources.

It's possible that the FSF could do it, on another machine, independent
of Savannah.  Most of the free distros are mirrored there.  Please see and email address@hidden to follow up.  Or just
keep using sourceforge I guess ...
