That's kind of odd...
I just ran:
% du -sk *
on ftp.netbsd.org, which sums to 3332118... You guys using really big
blocks, or something? 8-)
It's worth noting that I think that some of those sets of bits (1.0
and 1.1) should be mothballed, and that it looks like there's
currently a bunch of outdated stuff in 'arch' which should go away.
("isn't there always?" Well, yes, and once the release is done and
people start building -current snapshots, it'll fill up again. 8-)
