Re: Speeding up workspace

the reality is that the release date is arbitrary, 1.6 was supposed to
be December
but now its looking like its going to be March. thats the upside of
working on an
open-source project, its ready when its ready..

I'd rather wait another month and get this uber-important change in
that wait
another 8 months for 1.7

i'm not sure why you're offended that i mention some of the dev's are
on the
Collabnet payroll, its a fact and I'm sure that someone at Collabnet
is sitting
there wondering how they're going to win a benchmark against Atlassian
when their underlying engine is an order of magnitude slower.

Sorry if this offends people, but I'm just relaying the facts..
