Q.  How can get a report of the size of my packages?

A.  Try this command:

rpm -qa --queryformat '%10{size}-%{name}-%{version}\n' | sort -k1,1n
from Valent Turkovic http://kernelreloaded.blog385.com/index.php/archives/biggest-installed-packages-in-fedora Thanks For me, glibc-common is the biggest -- which you can't really delete. But the next largest was libgweather which I removed with:
rpm -e --nodeps libgweather
