Or give them more disk space - isn't this stuff meant to be cheap now-a-days?

If they dont have direct access to the internet, then you can setup a
Maven Repository Manager, to vet/restrict what artifacts they use.

My ~/.m2/repository is 1.2GB but I would expect that to be an upper
limit considering the cruft I have accumulated in there.
Probably time to delete it and reseed from the local Maven Repository Manager,

So back of the envelope calculations say 200 * 1.2GB = 240GB.
