Sure, I could give you an account. But given that dev. has become the de-facto t at h production machine and it is creaking as it is, I would rather not have too many more people experiment on dev, but would rather like to get us a new, real development server. What would you try to do on it? Sorry, I don't want to sound dis-encouraging, I am just afraid that dev will finally break if it get's any more to do in its current state.

I agree, that we should pursue the cycle layer more actively, I would also be interested in getting it go forward. But for this to work out, some structural changes would need to be done to get dev to be able to cope with the load.

Again, sorry if this does not sound helpful at all. I just got access to dev a couple of hours ago and am still trying to find my way around.
