It was brought to my attention over the past week we have been having
problems with disk space on the main server. It is grown to exceed
150GB, even after cleaning up old packages. My mirror's maximum size is
also just under 200GB. Other mirrors have already died, likely due to
the size increase.

Moving forward we should try to downsize, split the servers, or buy
larger space. I am bringing this up as it is currently not possible to
add any new packages of considerable size to the main repo.

One easy solution to solve the problem would be to remove PCR binaries
as they are only used by a very few in the community. We can move to an
AUR system which will consume less resources and allow users to easily
install their own packages from PCR using some Parabola-like version of

It's definately a problem we need to get under control.
