I would like to formally suggest that we take our -dbg packages and
them in a split repository, such as system-debug and user-debug.
Non-stratum 1 mirrors could choose whether or not to mirror these as
well. This would take a significant amount of disk space pressure off
of stratum 2/3 mirrors.
So, the overall size reduction would be about 20 GB per architecture.
Reducing e.g. the 1.0-beta3 package set by 80GB (as a low-ball estimate)
would reduce the repository to about 40GB in size, which makes hosting
multiple different versions concurrently a much more feasible prospect
for potential stratum 2/3 mirror providers.
