Last Sunday I noticed that sunjammer's usual backup host (housetree) was
down and tried to spin a backup on justice overnight. I should have
checked the disk space first.

Thank you, the file was mine, but it's recoverable data, since it's
distributed by the Internet Archive [1]. I parked it there because I
didn't have enough space on my laptop.

Alas, even with 43GB more disk space we're short. sunjammer's
filesystems total about 500GB, of which we backup about 400GB. I
excluded databases (which are dumped daily), caches and other files that
can be reconstructed easily.

Still, we need at least 800GB to backup sunjammer with 30 days of
history and we don't have that much anywhere. I asked the FSF if they
could give us the space, and I asked dogi to pull the old backup drives
from housetree so we can put them back online.
