I didn't delete the ISOs yet, but I did zap /srv/ftp/archive/pkgs.
I'll wait a few more days to see if anyone has strong opinions.

This is "gone"; the contents of /srv/cvs is available in
/srv/cvs.tar.xz if ever necessary.

Gone; it was the same as what was on gerolde.

@Remy: the biggest thing here taking up space is texlive stuff. Can
you make it part of your release process to clean this up every once
in a while? You don't necessarily need to delete all old versions, but
we probably don't need more than 1 or 2 previous ones.

OpenOffice was the other big culprit, I removed a few of those, and
also some glibc snapshots from <2010.

It would, but not really space on the right partitions. We already
compress HTTP logs on both servers that have them and that is the bulk
of the needed space. mail.log is big on gerolde but that partition has
plenty of room.

@Pierre: thanks for adjusting CLEANUP_KEEP.
