currently that is 122GB ...

during release time, this number can grow considerably (by 20-30gb) and
then will decrease as we move the old release to the vault

HOWEVER ... since the upstream guys are getting ready to do "A New
Thing" wrt the releases (a 4.5.0, 4.5.1, 4.5.2 that will be supported
each for 18 months ... and 4.6.0 with 4.5.1 ... and 4.6.1 and 4.7.0 with
4.5.2, etc.).

We are not sure what the upstream policy will produce until we really
see it in practice ... so we really have no idea what it will cause in
size increases.

Also, CentOS-5 will be added to the mix in probably 3-4 months ... that
should be about another 30gb too.
