This space is subject to quota restrictions. There is a 1GB "soft" quota, with a 1.5GB "hard" limit, and a 7-day grace period. In practice, this means:

  • If the stored data total less than 1GB, nothing special happens.
  • It is impossible to store more than 1.5GB of data.
  • Any amount between 1GB and 1.5GB triggers the "grace" countdown:
    • Once the grace period has expired, further uploads of data will be halted until the account drops below 1GB used for a pre-set period of time.


I have been an Ubuntu Member for a long time. Why does my account not exist?

Only Ubuntu Members who have explicitly signed the Code of Conduct in Launchpad are granted access to this service.

I uploaded a new key. Why doesn't it work yet?

Access credentials on are updated at regular intervals, and rely on the work of some periodic events on the Launchpad server. Your change could take up to two hours to take effect.

I am under the 1.5GB hard quota limit. Why can't I upload files?

If you have been between the 1GB "soft" limit and the 1.5GB "hard" limit for a week or more, you will be unable to upload any more data until you fall below the soft limit again.

I have a dataset that is critical to the development of Ubuntu, but it is larger than 1.5GB. How can I publish it?

Mail and describe what you are trying to accomplish.

What does this mail about my quota "violation" really mean?

The quota package was written with a University setting in mind, and does not allow administrators to change the warning mail template. See Bug 393396 for more information.

I do not have an SSH key on Launchpad

If you are connecting to the service and do not have a valid SSH key on the server, Nautilus will display a DBus error complaining that it did not receive a reply. There is no password authentication on the server.
