Here is a list of dirs using more than 100MB:
102M    /home/daenyth
103M    /lib/modules
117M    /usr/bin
129M    /lib
138M    /srv/cvs
262M    /home/sourceballs
275M    /var/lib
293M    /usr/share
389M    /usr/lib
405M    /srv/source-cleanup
795M    /var/archroot-releng-i686
879M    /var/archroot-releng-x86_64
882M    /usr
1007M   /home/aaron
1.6G    /var/log
2.9G    /srv/http
2.9G    /srv/svn-packages
3.6G    /var
4.4G    /home/archiso
6.0G    /home
6.8G    /srv/package-cleanup
22G     /srv/ftp
36G     /srv
46G     /

Maybe we should set up a cron to cleanup /srv/package-cleanup and
/srv/source-cleanup regularly. If we decide to do that I should update
the dbscripts to update the mtime of packages when moving them to the
cleanup dir; otherwise older packages would be removed immediately.
/home/sourceballs should require a lot more disk space quite soon.
