How much Disk space is needed to setup a local repo mirror?


I am thinking about setting up a local Debian Repository mirror. I want it to mirror just the Debian Repo at http://ftp.gtlib.gatech.edu.

Anyone have any idea how much disk space I might need to do it?

Maybe the answer is that if you have to worry about the answer to this question, you lack the necessary disk space to do it.

Have you considered asking the relevant people at Debian? http://www.debian.org/mirror/ftpmirror - look at the bottom there's an email address.

Sweet, I did not even know about a mirrors page on debian's site. I am not worried about disk space, I can get more if I need it. The question was to know how much I need to get.
