size of /var partition

Hi All,

I am planning an installation of Debian and 
solicit recommendations for the size of a 
separate /var logical partition. I plan to use 
apt-get to install packages and to upgrade my 
distribution when appropriate.

In section 3.3 of the Debian FAQ, there is a 
recommendation for a /var of 100Mb. However, I 
have seen posts on this list from users who have 
reported failures in "dist-upgrade" because the 
associated space requirements are much larger.

What would you recommend ?

After creating a "large" /var partition, I plan 
to create a symbolic link between /tmp 
and /var/tmp. ( ln -s /tmp /var/tmp ) Is this 
O.K. ?
