Description

quote from irc:

21:52 < elibrokeit> oaken-source: you could make the pacman cache more permanently empty, if you add the directories from the mirror server as additional CacheDirs
21:52 < elibrokeit> e.g. arch infra has:
21:52 < elibrokeit> CacheDir = /var/cache/pacman/pkg/
21:52 < elibrokeit> CacheDir = /srv/ftp/pool/packages/
21:52 < elibrokeit> CacheDir = /srv/ftp/pool/community/

I propose that we do something similar on winston, which would save us around half a gig of storage on the root partition
