Triage Stage: UnreviewedDesign decision needed

I'm sure you could do this yourself if you are that worried, not sure this needs to be in the core.

But I'll let a core developer decide.

i don't think, this would help. i would prefere to see such functionality on http-level. here you could even drop the connection when the file-size is too large before receiving all the stuff.

This is usually handled by the webserver (e.g. Apache's LimitRequestBody directive), would trying to manage this in Django be overkill?

django could do it at a finer granularity while apache's settings are more or less global...

For the archives: I'm not sure this is entirely related to #5361, but if nothing else, the fix for #2070 would certainly enable this behavior. Removing fs-rf.

As far as I can tell, Django still doesn't actually have a way of limiting the sizes of uploaded files, and neither #5361 nor #2070 is really a duplicate.

With #2070 in place now, though, it would seem trivially easy (admittedly said by one who hasn't actually done it) to write an upload handler that limits file upload size. So the question becomes is it worth having that as one of the provided upload handlers? You might want to raise that question on the dev list.

The original intention of this ticket has been solved by #2070. It is entirely possible to limit the uploaded file to a specific size. See New issues/enhancements should be raised in new tickets. Resetting original closed state, but more in favor of #2070 being the ticket this is a duplicate of :)
