> Hi folks,
> This is sounding the waters for some releng plans.
> First of all, /experimental/beta/. This would be a beta release of
> every arch, some time before the final release was made. Presently
> estimated about the same size as a release (2006.1 was 11.8Gb, 2007.0
> was 10.3Gb, 2008.0 is estimated around the same 10Gb mark).
> You'd be welcome to exclude it if you didn't want it on your mirror.
> Second is a bit of a pie-in-the-sky thing, but it's going to be a DVD
> image and a bunch of related tarballs. Also under /experimental
> somewhere, for another ~4.5Gb.
> On sizes for /releases, /releases is going to be shrinking another 3Gb
> or so, as the last arches lose their 2006.0 stuff when 2008.0 is close
> at hand.
