..this above assumes a public mirror, for any private lan mirrors,
or company employee use or company only use, you are not distributing
any GPL binaries to the public, you are not distributing anything

..mirror sizes: 'du -sch /srv/devuan/devuan /srv/devuan/merged' ?
My estimate is 2.2TB for /srv/devuan/merged.
Debian's total is 4.44TB plus their http://archive.debian.org/.
