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.
