The kimsufi mirror uses ~80gb for the 90k repo. Multiply that by the
number of releases that you intend to house? It's just a mirror so it
does not need much RAM or CPU and it just chugs along.

I'm looking for a thread on the BLAG forums in which Jebba mentioned
that one of his BLAG servers had ~750GB of disk space. I'll try to
find it.
