The quota is 4GB per project.  I'm not sure what the overhead from Hg
is, but the file system size, uncompressed, is around 1.8 GB.  And
that is just the tip of the trunk.

But one encouraging thing is mentioned in their FAQs [1]:

"What other limits exist?

There are disk-space quota limits for both issue tracker attachments
and total Subversion repository size, along with a limit on how many
total projects you are able to create. If you hit these limits, please
contact us via our Google Group or email directly to discuss the

So it is possible that we can request expanded space for this repository

If we wanted to ask for expanded space, does anyone know how much we
would need?

I didn't change any paths within the OOo repositories.  I only placed
those entire legacy trees within the existing SVN so they patch our
existing conventions and don't conflict with each other.

I look at it this way:  What do we need to do to "unblock" the
greatest number of people on the project?  Getting the wiki migrated
enables many contributors.  Getting SVN working does the same.
Bugzilla is mainly useful once we are actively coding.  So I am not
worried that it is not migrated yet.  But I will be worried if no one
is working on it soon.
