Either of those sound reasonable.

Good question! A check shows that the sum of the sizes of the .tar.gz
files gives 1269M. However, this neglects the documentation, build
logs etc. The total size of the "archive" directory is 13GB, though
this would be much less if we were to gzip the documentation first.

Actually this is not as much as I thought, so I might be able to try
out a local mirror after all.
