Sometimes, while working in open source, we don't take time to say thanks. We are so intent on fixing bugs and moving on to the next one.
I'd like to take the opportunity to say thanks to the webmasters for some work they did this weekend that substantially improved CVS performance. From Denis
"We moved the download.eclipse.org and archive.eclipse.org mounts to the other NFS server (the one that serves pserver and other less important stuff), and that seems to have made an enormous difference".
Our build now takes 40-50 minutes less because of this change. This makes our team much more productive. And a faster build makes me a happy release engineer.

Thank you Matt and Denis for all your hard work improving the eclipse.org infrastructure.
