+A few words about the size of the sources. If you use an URL then the size is
+almost unlimited, but if the source is not an url then the source will be added
+to the FST when the package will be accepted. We don't allow files bigger than
+100KB in FST. To solve this problem, the sources for a given package are placed
+in the /pub/other/sources/pkgname dir for each package. If the source is not
+compressed, we use gzip or bzip2 to compess it first. After this one can use a
+`http://ftp.frugalware.org/pub/other/sources/pkgname/foo`-styled URL for those
+big sources.
