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.
