Progress? Erm... see below.

Because it's been broken for ages? Because I've asked the same on the
bug I've referred to multiple times, as did quite a few other people,
and the thing is still dead ~3 hours a day? (So uhm, the argument that
infra doesn't know about is _really_ moot.) Because users complain over
and over again? Because we are getting tons of duplicate bugs due to
bugzilla being non-responsive? Because it's wasting hours of my time
every day? Because if CVS was in the same state, you'd about have a
revolution by now?

Good news, would be nice if you actually responded on the bug maybe? Or
send out some status report occasionally, since the bug's been open for
~1 year now?

Sorry, having a critical facility broken for ~6 months right now =!
patience. It plain sucks.
