Re: [Launchpad-users] Uploading binaries with source code to Launchpad ppa

Hi, Julian,

thanks for an answer. I understand the problem.
We can decrease RAM requirements, but it will increase binary size.

We'll never support the uploading of binaries, sorry.  One of the guarantees
that the PPA service provides is that the binary you can see has the source
code available that was used to build it.

If we allow arbitrary binary uploads then we can't make that guarantee.

Can you fix your build to require less RAM?  That sounds pretty excessive!
