    I was talking about the checklist on:
    which is the requirements page I think most applicants see first 

I agree.

    and then lead to:


It also leads to
which although is explicitly not the hosting policy, is more detailed
and useful than the actual policy for submitters, it seems to me.  I've
never been sure what to do about this discrepancy, but it's always
seemed troublesome to me.  Sigh.  Separate issue, I know.

Anyway, I don't see anything about distros on either of those pages, and
doing some searches didn't turn it up either.

Searching the mailing list archives, I found some responses.  See for
example, which says:

    As mentioned in the registration pages, we do not host complete
    distros, distros isos, packages repositories, etc, for space and
    bandwidth reasons. We may just offer support for organisational
    purpose and dedicated software (such as iso creation scripts).

(This same text is in replies to several old requests.)  But I could not
the right "registration pages".  

Also, if it's about space and bandwidth, then supporting partial distro
uploads (of certain packages, as mentioned in this latest request) seems
like it would be allowed.  Hmm.
