Example Suite upload limit

Post by DestinedToDie » 23 Apr 2017, 11:20

Hey.

Currently the upload limit for files is 50 MB. But last release I almost reached the 50 MB limit with maximum 7z compression. Could we make this limit higher?

I had only really considered this work-flow when working with individual files and not with full releases.

I think it is time to think about migrating to making releases on github, similar to how I did UIX:R LE.

The idea is that all text documents are in revision control. Tag for release, then use the release to upload our 7z archive.

Is this a better idea?

What is your github page?

Added you as admin. To be clear, we're not using the repo to host binary files. However we can commit readme, manifests, storyboards and other versionable content. When we make a release, that is the moment we can upload the final release to the release page.

Github has specific reservations on repo sizes. A company I worked with bumped into the 1GB limit a few times. Actions were usually an email and a harsh warning that they'd freeze our repo when we got close to 1.5GB.

"GitHub will warn you when pushing files larger than 50 MB. You will not be allowed to push files larger than 100 MB."

Well, sounds like our releases are already large enough that they wouldn't want them on their website.

This is only for LFS (as in in the git repo itself), this does not cover releases. Take a look at UIX:R releases as an example. Total usage is probably around 3~4 GiB.

I have run into their filesystem and bandwidth quota when using LFS however.

Our 50~100 MiB releases will be just fine, it would have been a problem I would not have recommended it as an option to begin with.
