Yes, and spaces, too. I remove these.

comment cron ignores changes to /etc/crontab
The curious thing is read doesn't follow (unlike when I edit user's crontab)

comment cron ignores changes to /etc/crontab
It's true, but, from man cron: Additionally, cron checks each minute to see if its spool directory's modtime (or the modtime on /etc/crontab) has changed, and if it has, cron will then examine the modtime on all crontabs and reload those which have changed. Thus cron need not be restarted whenever a crontab file is modified. Note that the Crontab(1) command updates the modtime of the spool directory whenever it changes a crontab. mtime of /etc/crontab does change when I edit it.

It's SLES 11.3, but it's sort of a lab machine and it's not eligible for tech support

comment SSH Colors Enabled, # Showing up in odd place
The system you log in to might not be aware of the terminal you use. If you see some weird behavior in the future, check out this document.

It might be part of solution.

Don't think so. It's not like I want to set some hard limit. Quite often some of them might need to write a large amount of data for a day or two, and it wouldn't affect the rest of developers. Managing quotas would be a hassle.

An interesting approach! I'll probably play with it, but I'm not sure it would detect all the files. On the other hand, yes, I can use a template for logrotate rules, that might work.

No, production is production and no such things are allowed there. I'm afraid that in this case I can't do much with communication, and it's not because I dislike communication.
