Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Retention time for SimRel releases

Yet another huge part of mirror content is EPP project . This one is due for some pruning too similar to simrel.

("Download.e.o size too big for mirrors"), Aleksandar Kurtakov pointed
out, that a big chunk of disk space is taken by the content of the folder.

It currently contains all SimRel releases from "Europa" to 2021-12
taking up ~100GB. As a first step the mirrors exclude list has been
modified so all releases up to "Mars" are not mirrored.

I'm planning to move all releases from "Europa" to 2019-12 to next week. So only the last 8 releases will stay on I will add the task to move old releases to to the release check list

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

In it's written "download.e.o must only contain the last 2 releases. Older releases must be moved to archives". IMHO it would be good if this is either enforced that way for everything(!) or changed to some other number (for which there is agreement it makes sense) and again enforced.

IMHO, such a check should be part of release or progress reviews and actions required from projects. Having smth happening regularly, being well defined and actionable is what we should aim for rather than the current "exclude" lists and generally costing time to people involved in many projects to just go and check if any of the dozens projects involved in is guilty.
