So you think we should change to for example:
"Approximately 10MB is required for the Maven installation itself. In
addition to that, additional disk space will be used for your local Maven
repository. The size of your local repository will vary depending on usage
but calculate for at least 500MB."

Maven 3.2.1 is around 8MB, but Maven 3.0 is around 3.5MB and 2.x is even
smaller. Stating approx 10MB will give us some space.

My local repo is 1.5GB so I'm guessing an average dev would need at least
