The Ubuntu development team plan to announce the beta version of Ubuntu
Feisty Fawn on the 22nd of March and upload the beta ISO images to
The current disk space requirement for an Ubuntu releases mirror is
presently 30Gbytes in size. The addition of the Feisty Fawn beta on the
22nd of March will increase the disk space requirement for hosting a
Ubuntu releases mirror to 40Gbytes.
On the 19th of April, the Ubuntu development team plan to replace the
beta version of Feisty Fawn with the final release, which should not
result in a significant increase in disk space.
If your mirror does not have the disk space, could you please contact
mirrors at ubuntu.com and inform the Ubuntu mirror team of this. While the
Ubuntu mirror team are not in a position to give assistance, we would
like to discover the impact of such a change on Ubuntu's mirrors.
