For Fedora 8, per arch, at this moment that would be:

$ du -sch fedora-unity/releases/8/Everything/x86_64/ \

19G     fedora-unity/releases/8/Everything/x86_64/
5.0G    fedora-unity/updates/8/x86_64/
24G     total

minus the updates in the normal tree already:

$ du -sch fedora/releases/8/Everything/x86_64/ fedora/updates/8/x86_64/
19G     fedora/releases/8/Everything/x86_64/
3.9G    fedora/updates/8/x86_64/
23G     total

For Fedora 7, per arch, that'd be:

$ du -sch fedora-unity/releases/7/Everything/x86_64/ \

16G     fedora-unity/releases/7/Everything/x86_64/
18G     fedora-unity/updates/7/x86_64/
34G     total

again minus the updates in the tree already:

$ du -sch fedora/releases/7/Everything/x86_64/ fedora/updates/7/x86_64/
16G     fedora/releases/7/Everything/x86_64/
13G     fedora/updates/7/x86_64/
28G     total

So, roughly, 12GB per release per arch, not taking into account the ever 
growing number of packages.

Kind regards,

Jeroen van Meeuwen

P.S. For everyone wondering, yes this host archives every single bit 
that ever hits the mirrors except for development/ and releases/test/.
