I *think* everything is uploaded now. It is certainly possible that I  
could have missed an ancestor package somewhere along the line. Anyone  
spotting a hole, please let me know.

I see a couple of hundred mSec ping time but the issue that bugs me in  
the slow response on the web side of the job. I seems to take 2-5 sec  
to do most web transactions. Gets really annoying after a few dozen!

Anyway as I said, the upload is done and I've added several developers  
to the project to see if we can make it work.
Dave, Andreas, Eliot, John & Ian are all signed in. The latest version  
is from a month ago when I had time to 'fix' mantis 7072. If you look  
at the bugs assigned to me you can get an idea of what should come next.
