That is a possibility, but I will either:

a) simply set up a /var large enough for all I need, or
b) symlink to /srv, if necessary

I am hoping to avoid symlinking, though. But what I was wondering is if
there is anything other than containers/VM images that systemd
introduces in /var that takes a significant amount of space?

BTW: Whoever came up with the ability to do parts of the installer via
ssh - thank you, thank you, thank you! :) _Very_ convenient, I just
hadn't actually tried it before.
