fetching data - e.g. scans of publications, photos, e.g.
But all these pieces of data, deserve and will get the special treatment

try ... 20-%202005

(prototype, so a bit buggy) yes it is currently running on different machines, so it is possible, but it just adds an administrative burden, and complicates it for the geek and none geek user alike.

Totally agree, however, single point makes that management easier. In the end it is a compromise, the BCA is cloud then there is other cloud storage, my arguement is make things easy (and at a reasonable cost) for people and it is more like to be used.
Archive properly on the BCA seems to fit today's technology, compromise along the way may need to happen.....

I do not have direct access to the china svn server that the data is coming. so sorry no. Best figure I have is that it is 5.6Gb on disk with 2500 odd change sets, and this is only one of the servers, there is more on another one (but I believe a magnitude less).

cave-registry has about 8Gb free and at about change set 1800 I got and out of memory error. cpanel was showing almost full, cannot remember exact figures.

I am told the Matienzo dataset is 5Gb, that is not a transfer, so it should start at being that small

To try to get an idea CheddarCatchment is 132Mb on server with 194 changes. on my machine it is 115.5Mb. So managed correctly not much of an overhead.

Update: As of 23rd Sept. I've organised it so the total space is now 20GB.
