Description Dan Macpherson 2014-01-20 00:19:45 UTC
Updates to storage requirements as per Todd Sanders' recommendation:

* Plan for 40GB per binary rpm repository and ~x2 (times two) per
debug-info repository over the life-cycle of the major RHEL version.
* Growth estimate would be approximately +10GB/year for binary, and
+20GB/year per debug-info.

We will update the documentation to reflect the above, but again this is
just meant to be guidance and actual storage amounts could be plus/minus.

Comment 2 Dan Macpherson 2014-01-21 15:46:42 UTC
Modified text is good. Probably some minor changes are required:

* All repositories are placed under /var/lib/pulp. Create this file directly...

Change to: "Create this directory..."

* ... only if you need to create a new mount point for it, otherwise, it will be created automatically during the installation process. 

Change to present tense: "... only if you need to create a new mount point for it. Otherwise, the installation process creates it automatically."

* "In /var/lib/pulp you will require at least 40GB of storage..."

Change to present tense: "The /var/lib/pulp directory requires at least 40GB of storage..."
