+1 from me
as far as requirements sparc/sparc64 will be ~ same as ppc/ppc64 ia64,
alpha, arm should be close to i386 s390 im not sure but im guessing
similar to sparc unless they only build for s390x and drop support for s390
though alpha, arm, and s390 lag behind sparc which is behind ia64.
So the actual number we should be using to reserve space for an arch for a
release is..? I really really really need someone to find that number and
commit to it and its essential that the number be correct. We have done a
horrid job of guessing how much space we need for things and its caused a
lot of needless headaches.
It's not easy to guess how much space we need. There's a lot of parts
involved, especially when you start talking about isos and updates. So
lets not guess. Lets do some research and get that number.
