@martijnbraam's pmOS CE install video starts with factory quality testing/flashing and shows the first run experience at 2:30 with the on-device installer.

Since the final rootfs, the on-device installer rootfs and the factory rootfs all run postmarketOS, this became a beautiful three layer cake of postmarketOS images. 🍰 😁

We’re excited to announce that a beta version of Android 9 is now available for Fairphone 2! This makes it one of only a few Android phones released in 2015 to still receive continued software support and we couldn't be prouder. 🙌 💚 #daretocare #longevity #sustainability

@carl @bart I think it's been running since January 2019. My /var/lib/postgres folder is 5.4GiB (this also includes some other dbs I have in postgres but just small things that are surely less than 100MB) and the synapse media store is 2.3GiB. I'm not in any particularly big rooms either (like the HQ room)

@bart I wonder if there's a way of exporting the bare minimum from a matrix user (list of joined rooms for exanple^^) so you can reimport that when you wipe the database and everything will behave correctly again.
My own synapse database is growing quite much, not sure what's being saved there... Irc logs (.txt) from a couple of years add up to some hundred MB but my Synapse db is already multiple GBs in disk space
