can we please get back to the thread topic:
Does 'end of life' (resp. end of support) for a distribution have to
result in its removal from the openSUSE build service ?
From the feedback on opensuse-buildservice, I have the impression that
most participant want a 'freeze' and not a 'remove'.
That's also my impression.
I posted numbers about traffic and disk usage for 10.1 on the
opensuse-buildservice list. 10.1 generates only few traffic:
Space occupied on mirrors by 10.1 (build service repos fallout) is 45G,
as reported here:
Thus, it is safe to keep that stuff and simply stop mirroring it,
whereby mirror disk space (the commonly expressed concern) is not
relevant. (We can also remove Factory from mirroring, which will free
up stunning 100G.)
BTW, regarding 10.1 distro (not buildservice repos), it is no longer
mirrored already, since I removed it from all rsync modules last week.
