This is quickly filling up /home on gerolde. Somewhere on /srv (173 GB
vs 25 GB) and not under ftp/ would be a much better idea.

$ sudo du -shxP * | sort -h
568M	aaron
704M	paul
838M	remy
1.3G	pierre
1.7G	mailman
4.1G	sourceballs
5.7G	tpowa

Your homedir is also quite big. :P

Tpowa- do we really need to keep around ISOs from 2007 in your
archive/ directory?
