Re: New vegastrike for F-10: 500MB !! ??

I have no problem with it, BUT, (and I speak personally here), there are
some people that will not use it because it's just too big (500MB is
larger than some of the monthly data transfer caps in New Zealand
(200MB/mo), I personally, only have 700MB/day.

Also remember that even though it may produce a 500MB noarch rpm, it also
means quite likely a 500MB srpm making it 1 gig in total.

Another consideration would be the size of the community behind
vegastrike, if we have 100+ then thats great, if it's only 10 then I
become doubtful over it's usefulness in regards to resources.  (Don't get
me wrong, just trying to put a slightly different perspective on it.)

Just my two cents,
