I think that there are some issues with OpenACS.org that we need to prioritize on the same level as getting bugs fixed and releases out. It's a real bummer to position the OACS as a scaleable, high-performance toolkit when the website is so slow.
This is not to say that those who are spending their valuable time getting that work out are doing something wrong. But I feel we're doing a disservice not addressing this stuff on the same level.
The two critical issues are:
- Forums scalability This is really horrid. Personally, I'm finding that the amount of time to get a post confirmed is a discouragement to responding to posts.
- Download area We need both kernel, official and contrib package APM area.
Again, I understand people are overwhelmed getting these things out, but I really think that these should be critical showstoppers for getting at least v5.1 out.
