Issue #2589 resolved

Website times out when stripping (BB-1431)

Emlyn Corrin
created an issue

I am trying to strip a branch from my repo (revision 814cb568ad66 from the repo corrin/book), but the web interface always times out. It has some large files it, so I tried just stripping one revision at a time, but it still times out. Is there a way around this? Or could an admin do it for me on the server?

Thanks in advance, Emlyn

    Hi Emlyn,

    Your repository has some seriously large binary changesets and stripping these takes longer than what is permitted by the webserver. You are therefore not able to strip yourself.

    I have run the strip on the server and stripped 8.2 GB off your repo (I stripped 814cb568ad66). Although in the end it is up to you, I strongly encourage you to keep your changesets more manageable in terms of size.

    Cheers, Erik
