5 Making those files available on our mirroring system is not as easy as you
6 might think. It is not a big-bang tranformation, meaning we will need to
7 continue to support people using the old way. Therefore, deltup will
8 require additional space on our mirrors. Before we can commit to
9 supporting this on our already-bulging mirror system, someone needs to
10 identify *exactly* what sort of space requirements this system will
11 require. (ok, not exactly, but at least within a 10% margin of error)
