There are no current file size limits but I'd suggest ~ 100Mb for the present.
NB: to use the storage you will have to install the OFS package (we
should probably make this a requirement!):
As way of background it is worth explaining how the default datapkg
'ckan' storage works:
1. It is backed off Google IO (storage kindly donated to the OKF)
2. We have to deal with the issue of allowing a general client to
upload to this storage but not giving them arbitrary access to the
3. This can be solved various ways (e.g. amazon -- at least with
upload form -- provide a sort of signing procedure). We solve this
using an upload proxy  implementing the OFS RestStore interface
