Description Patrick C. F. Ernzer 2007-12-09 12:12:02 EST
Description of problem:
I just generated an sosreport for another bug and the reulting file was 
surprisingly large.
We should either make sure it is small by default or at least offer the user 
the choice and include a warning along the lines of 'makes file large' just as 
we have 'slow' warnings for options already

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
only tried this once, but I do not expect it to vary between runs

Steps to Reproduce:
1. make an sosreport
2. look at file size
3. look inside archive
Actual results:
/etc weighs in at just under 75MB and /usr at just under 135MB (uncompressed)
looking deeper, the offenders seem to be

Expected results:
sosreport of a size that bugzilla will actually accept

Looks like the majority of unnecessarily/large files were pulled in from
/etc/X11/fontpath.d - I have now added this path (and a few others) to the skip

Thank you for reporting this!
