I am a bit worrying whether the 512MB of RAM in the consumer products
would be sufficient because I know that g++ can be very memory hungry
when building Fedora packages. I experienced it on 64-bit platform
(s390x), but 2GB of RAM (plus some swap) was too small there.
We ran some tests on some of the largest/slowest-to-build packages in
Fedora before the hardware was ordered, and 512M appeared to be
sufficient (and ARM machines with >512M are fairly rare, though this
will probably start changing).
