[Systems] Exceeding disk space limits on sunjammer.sugarlabs.org - Is there any way we can move the general interest files like Sugar-Creation-Kit-ver05.iso and ASLO.xo to Downloads on Sunjammer?

These requests should be sent to sysadmin at sugarlabs.org (see the motd on
sunjammer) or systems at lists.sugarlabs.org (for a wider discussion).

I could extend your quota if needed, but it seems you've already cleaned
up your files.

I've added you to the soas group.

Files dropped in /upload/soas will show up on all mirrors within a few

Please, coordinate with the other SoaS maintainers before you alter the
structure of this tree.

These shouldn't probably go into the soas hierarchy, and /activities is
already "taken" by aslo's web application.

Perhaps we could create /activity-packs for these things? I'd also
rename the file to something clearer and lowercase, such as
"sugar-activity-pack-2010-04.tar.gz". You may want to provide an
additional xz archive to reduce the download size.

Please, work with alsroot for a generic scheme for releasing these
things, then I'll create the necessary directory structure and grant you

This I would leave in your public_html, or better in a git repository on
git.sugarlabs.org. At least, until it reaches the level of maturity at
which we have formal releases with source and binary tarballs.

For these, we could create hierarchy under /images, /appliances or /vm .

It's important to come up with good names for the top-level directories
of our download archives because they can't easily be changed.
