You might want to guess again. I don't mirror PPC packages, only having
the one PPC based system, and the present space used by update mirrors

davjam@playing:/media/share/suse/i386/update> du --max-depth=1 -h
8.5G ./9.1
11G ./9.3
24G ./10.1
19G ./10.2
15G ./10.3
2.8G ./11.0
4.0K ./11.1
79G .

While my network installation sources use:

davjam@playing:/media/share/suse/i386/update/10.3> du --max-depth=1 -h /mounts/cobra-mk3/local/
0 /mounts/cobra-mk3/local/makeSUSEdvd-src

6.8G /mounts/cobra-mk3/local/openSUSE-11.0
0 /mounts/cobra-mk3/local/openSUSE-factory
32G /mounts/cobra-mk3/local/

My local installation source for 10.3 was created using the DVDs from
the boxed set as the initial source, and then used rsync and the OSS to
make it work properly.

For 10.2, I used the boxed set DVD. I haven't (yet) mirrored the OSS
repo. The same method was used to create my 11.0 repo, and that is yet
to have rsync and the OSS repo "treatment".
