Summary0000664: increase the module size limit for the installer
DescriptionThe file size for a module is limited to 250000 bytes, why ?

Is it possible to increase this size?

For example:
$maxsize = preg_replace(array('/\s*K/i', '/\s*M/i', '/\s*G/i'), array('000', '000000', '000000000'), ini_get("upload_max_filesize"));
if ($this->filesize > $maxsize) {

Is it that you're hitting your upload_max_filesize or you just want it that by default?

I wouldn't necessarily set it to that.. if someone allows large files to be uploaded for the Files module, that's not a problem, but it's unlikely to have a comparably sized file for a module.

This is because I am currently developing a "wiki" module and its compressed size is actually 1070ko, I can not upload it with the installer.

A 1MB+ moudule? Wow. Are there lots of images or a separate framework or.. ?

I'm not criticizing, just surprised.

you're right, I forgot a big file in the directory module. Its real size is 435 kb.

It uses markItUp ( for the user interface and I developed php code for parsing these wiki syntaxes: Textile, Creole, Markdown and MediaWiki

Can you, please, consider raising this limit to 500 kb?

In r1571 I've increased the limit to 1000000 bytes (just less than 1 MB).
