As far as my current plan with the spin goes, achieving 4.2G might be a
little difficult, since I dont intend to include domain specific tools.
However, that might change with more eyeballs looking at it and
suggesting more "generic" packages. I am also in touch with the SciTech
SIG members and in the process of reviving the mailing list.
If the image is over 4 GiB, then it can't be saved on a FAT file system.
In the past ISOs other than the source ISOs have been limited to 4 GiB
for that reason. (Even though a DVD will hold a bit more.)
Mirror space also used to be a significant issue, but it looks like only
the KDE and (Gnome) Desktop live images are ending up on the mirrors
now. The other live images are available as torrents or from a server
that isn't mirrored (at least by the full set of mirrors).
