The requirements also says:

"Disk No minimum requirement. Approximately 100MB will be used for
your local repository, however this will vary depending on usage ..."

AFAICT there _is_ a minimum requirement which is needed to store a
basic set of plugins.
And of course there is the Maven application itself, though that is
tiny (under 6Mb for 3.0.5)

100MB is quite a small repository; they can easily grow to 1GB or more.
