Could you tell what this script really does and is it safe?

hmm i think i already had python optified but i though lets do it once more to see what it cleans up
So it did install many things but the only thing i gained was something from 33 to 36
and after reinstalling some stuff that i need i did fall back to 35 (but maybe a reboot would give me that back)

what does help very well is just disabling the 2 repo's (testing and develop) then it jumps to more then 47

what is exactly stored for that. And cant that be done in home?

well the information about all the programs, the icons. It is said that the icon-cache would be too slow on eMMC. I haven't tried moving it.

I simply apt-get -f dist-upgraded, and whenever I ran out of space I rebooted and redid apt-get -f dist-upgrade.

Worked fine, only took me about 4 hours to update

Anything under MyDocs (which is where the video, music, pictures, etc default to) is on the 32GB eMMC.

Applications from the Ovi store will be optified, so larger apps and data will go to /opt (which is on the 32GB eMMC), though libraries and smaller files will still go to the rootfs.

But in terms of the apps themselves, all the ones in Ovi, and in maemo-extras are optified. They have to have been optified to get that far. Apps still in testing (less so) and devel are (highly) likely not to have been optified. No point in doing that for every build of something that's still in very early experimentation. It's a sort of 'tidying up before public release' process.

Which gives you a fair idea of what you might want to uninstall.

If you still have 20% available (45mb) you should be ok for the Next big Thing.

Very clear. Thanks.
