The Joinup WebDAV and SVN services – which are the so called “space for the projects” - are available for project owners to store any files related to the project by means of the different services that the platform provides (example: svn, or SSH service). The default limit of this storage is 1 Gbyte (for SVN services) + 0.5 Gbyte (WebDAV services). This limit shall not be passed without a prior agreement between the project owner and the Joinup technical team. The Joinup technical team will monitor the amount of space consumed by each project. If the quota is exceeded, a warning will be issued to the project owner.
