least 1 of 2 criteria can be met.  Please read below for details...

Right now, we don't have enough disk space to respond to every request 
for OS mirroring.  As it is, unless your distro can meet one of the 
following criteria:

1) has a strong security-oriented slant/component
2) your organization can provide us with funds for additional storage 

we would not be able to help.  Our storage situation may be changing in 
the near future, but I cannot assume that it will at this time.
