this was the point of a precedent email. Now may be it also mean that  
with a faster MC we can integrate faster, and also that you could  
commit a MCZ and not a CS and may get an automated build.

I asked ****several**** times about spending some money so that one  
person can help us speeding up/improving the harvesting
process in the foundation board. But I was like shouting in the  
desert. I still think that with some better tools we could go much  
faster. But so far I got no time to think about the tools, else
