Potato has ~2 GB of gzip sources, uncompress that gives you maybe
3 GB.

Each day theres about 50 MB source updates. Some are new orig.tar.gz
files, which could be diffed. But just assume the uncompressed diffs
are about 50 MB/day.

That means each year the debian cvs grows 18 GB in size. So in one
year time we have 6 times the size.

Who do you think will host that?
