Content of /snapshots/

Eberhard Moenkeberg
Hi,

does it really make sense to still keep snapshots from 2010 ?

emoenke@ftp4:0 01:51:34 /mirr/bin > du -s /pub/FreeBSD/snapshots/201011
31917144        /pub/FreeBSD/snapshots/201011
emoenke@ftp4:0 01:52:45 /mirr/bin > du -s /pub/FreeBSD/snapshots/201012
19357096        /pub/FreeBSD/snapshots/201012
emoenke@ftp4:0 01:52:50 /mirr/bin >

A huge waste of space, isn't it?

Next question: 20110?, four versions actually presented.

emoenke@ftp4:0 02:05:21 /mirr/bin > du -s /pub/FreeBSD/snapshots/2011*
18917340        /pub/FreeBSD/snapshots/201101
2584728 /pub/FreeBSD/snapshots/201102
12596740        /pub/FreeBSD/snapshots/201105
1737556 /pub/FreeBSD/snapshots/201107
emoenke@ftp4:0 02:05:39 /mirr/bin >

OK, much less, but why so much outdates stuff still there?

Remember, you are not only wasting space on your master servers, but also
on your willing mirrors.

I guess the FreeBSD maintainers need a little bit more consciousness for
the behalf of the mirror servers. You are - I guess - in the same "space
wasting" unconsciousness like mandrivalinux and debian.

A positive example for me is OpenSuSE. They are just aware, not more is
needed.

OK, I can silently disable mirroring /snapshots/, but the true way should
be better.

Hello,

reading the old thread: it would be really nice to remove 2010
snapshots.
