This is related to KDE Live being oversize at Beta:
which should have been a blocker, but it was agreed that we will change
criteria instead. Here's a proposal for that change.
Instead of current Beta criterion:
"The release-blocking images must meet current size requirements."
I propose to move that criterion to Final milestone instead, and use this
"The release-blocking images must meet current size requirements, as
documented at [Releases/28/ReleaseBlocking]." (the release number will
of course change in time)
I chose  over , because  contains all important release-blocking
images (distinguished to individual .iso or .img level), while  only
contains spins and nothing else. In , we will add a new column labeled
"target size" and fill it out. It is enough to fill it out just for images
marked as release blocking. The nice thing is that in that table you can
easily see who is responsible for that image, and so it's clear who's
responsible for keeping the target size up-to-date (and also whom to ping
if it isn't).
The reason to move this criterion to Final is that we no longer block on
optical images for Beta (that's quite a recent change), and with flash
drives you can always get a larger flash drive to fit the image on. So it's
no longer necessary to insist on perfect size for Beta. And being oversize
is honestly just a minor problem.
Note that I haven't proposed any particular sizes for any particular
images. I believe that should be all the responsibility and decision of the
owning group (or perhaps FESCo, for some generic images), not QA.
This got pre-approved on latest QA meeting. I adjusted the wiki page and
created a "target size" column:
I was also tasked by contacting all the individual maintainers and ask them
to consider the current target size and provide an up-to-date one. I've
sent the requests here:
