Yes, the 2 TB is for everything you might do with an AutoBuilder. The
actual space used will be closer to your 35 GB, since you're building
only a single image / work product. People have used BuilBot directly
for automated builds, but using the AutoBuilder code (which runs
BuildBot underneath) gives you added flexibility and capability
without much additional overhead.
