Here's our current disk usage broken down by mirrored directory. We aren't mirroring DVDs at this point so it would be higher if you did. Also, when a new point release comes out the old and new source will be mirrored for a short time (ie both 5.4. and 5.5), so you might want to plan for at least twice the available space for the 4 and 5 trees to be safe. Only mirroring 4 and 5 would just be a matter of twiddling your rsync string. Hope this helps..
