hey,

So I have the full source listing from the latest release (1.2) the default branch.

 

I just wrote one dummy module, and then built the Orchard.Web project and published it. After publishing, it turns out to be over 500 MB. 

 

Most of this space is used up by each module, which turns out to be about 15-20 MB per module?

 

What do I do here?

I'm seeing the same difficulty.  At work, where we don't have an overwhelming amount of available bandwidth, it took ages to publish a debug version of Orchard out to our web servers.  It seems that each one of the modules is running with it's own version of DLL's - even the Orchard DLL's.  I'm hoping that eventually the solution will used a shared location to stored these DLL's.  I'm guessing that would reduce the 500MB footprint to around 50MB.

I take that back!  :)

I just published a Release version of Orchard to our servers.  Total file size: 38.1MB.  Completely respectable.
