Yes indeed, there is a limit for attacments to bugreports, but I do
not remember/know how hight it is set. This might thus been the

Compressing those debdiffs with xz massively reduces their size:

197K + 620B for the both together. Suggest do do that on big debdiffs.
I nsome cases you see the similar issue when people fill
