Space on Disk :
  there are several important decisions pending.. 
Interested participants may find a detailed disk-space accounting as 
part of the build process.. 
Please see the build logs for some build, preferably post-Beta1 so we 
can discuss. 
 Second, we will have at least 8GB on a USB medium for upcoming events. 
The 4GB space limit comes from a file size the represents the stored 
file system. 
In some cases, this SquashFS file is not a limitation. 
Therefore, extra care ought to be taken to differentiate where a 4GB 
limit matters.. 
best regards from Berkeley

GMT size is an issue in OSGeo-Live. 

gmt depends on gmt-gshhg & gmt-dcw to be truely useful (but are only
Recommends due to their size), but gmt-dcw is not included due to disk
space, see:


And the related discussion with upstream:
