I've tried to replace some of the "process" BYOC workers. However, after I replaced the first one I started getting "Build clouds quota exceeded." error message.
The project used to have 5 process machines, and 1 docker machine. What is the quota for FOSS projects?
How come I could relace the first worker, but the rest gives quota exceeded even after I deleted some of the old workers?

    Hi Jan,

    There is no limit, there is just an internal "soft" quotas. I've bumped the quota for your account and you can add new build cloud.

    thank you, it worked.
    Is the quota a new thing? I don't remember running into limits when I first set things up.
    The process workers are split to handle one job at a time to avoid problems with concurrent runs, so there's more build clouds than the minimum needed.

    It's been for a while. It's mainly abuse-prevention mechanism, not a real limitation.
