Hi Martin,

Thanks for the info. I updated the Blueprint: 

Just a few minor changes but let me know if you have any concerns with 
the new text.

Also, I added a note here: 

to tell people to make sure they have enough space for each XO. I'm not 
sure how you estimate the maximum size of the Journal or Datastore but 
its a start.

Do you want to say anything about what happens if your available XS 
quota is smaller than the XOs datastore? If it deletes the whole backup 
  I could put that in there. That makes it a little more real and will 
encourage people to take the note seriously.

One suggestion for XS 0.5. I suggest we have an option to turn feature 
off at the XS. I'm sure people can hack in and do that manually but they 
may miss it. My understanding is that if you don't have space on your XS 
then backups will be useless and its better to turn it off.

I'm calling the doc on this one done. One more item off the 8.2 release 
check list :-)
