26 Here's the question, gnome's bugzilla has over twice as many bugs as
27 we have, is quite speedy and doesn't seem to suffer from the OOM
28 killers that our bugzilla has. So what's the difference? Did gnome
29 just toss hardware at the problem to make it go away or have they done
30 something to make bugzilla work for them?
32 I think throwing hardware at the problem is the wrong approach in this
33 case, as its just delaying the problem that has made the new hardware
34 seem like the solution...which will no doubt creep up again.
36 Don't get me wrong, the donation of hardware from gni is greatly
37 appreciated. I'd just to see that we try and see why we have the
38 problem in the first place as well. As I'm sure that this problem will
39 creep up again
