| For those interested, auric.debian.org (aka ftp-master.debian.org) is an

| It's processes include postgresql (which handles the database of all our

| developers are uploaded to this machine, which processes the incoming
| packages every 15 minutes, placing them into a queue. Once a day, it

Sounds convincing to me.  I'll go for the 2.4.19-pre8 then.
