Aegis
Disk Quota

Dear Source Forge Administrator,

Aegis is a software configuration management tool.

It has been under active development for 20+ years, and still is today. It is not small.

The Aegis web site and /home/groups/a/ae/aegis/aegis data directory serve three purposes:

  1. to provide Aegis-style web access for projects who use Aegis as their SCM. You can get an idea of how many projects are involved via http://aegis.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/aeget.

    Not a huge number, but then, not all projects using Aegis are hosted on SourceForge, and not all of them want to be linked into this project list.

    The files in /home/groups/a/ae/aegis/cgi-bin support this activity.

  2. The web site provides access for other Aegis maintainers to download change sets via the aedist(1) distributed development mechanism.

    You may like to consult the Aegis Reference Manual for the relevant man page, the Geographically Distributed Development chapter of the Aegis User Guide, and the Working In Teams section of the Aegis How To.

    The files in /home/groups/a/ae/aegis/aegis support this activity.

  3. The web site serves as an example to potential users of Aegis how the distributed development facilities work, and it provides those facilities to other Source Forge projects which use Aegis to develop their software.

The directories are already as small as they can be and still provide meaningful example to potential users, or a meaningful distributed development mechanism for Aegis developers.


While you may have answered some (or all) of these questions already, please answer them again, in this order, to ease the handling of this request.

1. Is this request for a user or a project?
This is a request for a project.

2. What is the user name or project UNIX name?
aegis.

3. What would you like your new quota to be?
Please increase the disk quota to 1GB.

4. Have you reviewed your current content on disk, and pruned all unnecessary content prior to making this request?
Yes. The directories are already as small as they can be and still provide meaningful example to potential users, or a meaningful distributed development mechanism for Aegis developers.

5. Why do you need more than the standard quota?
Aegis is a software configuration management tool. It has been under active development for 15 years, and still is today. It is not small.

The /home/groups/a/ae/aegis/cgi-bin directory contains a number of programs which facilitate distributed development using Aegis. These are used by a number of other SourceForge projects, see http://aegis.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/aeget for a list.

The /home/groups/a/ae/aegis/aegis directory contains a carefully winnowed copy of the Aegis repository, both to demonstrate how Aegis is used for distributed development, and to facilitate distributed development of Aegis itself.

6. If this is for a user quota, why can't you use the project home directory for this activity?
Not applicable, the request is for a project quota.

7. Have you already been granted a quota increase in the past? If so, please provide a reference to it here (URL, copy of email contents, etc.).
Yes, by David Burley. See 1469577 for details.
