Yes, we've pretty much had a meltdown due to the high end user traffic 
generated from the last (Mozilla/Phoenix/Firebird/Firefox) release.

Which addresses a big problem. Mozdev is a Mozilla development site. We 
now seemed to have evolved into an end user site. We can't sustain this 
kind of traffic. it takes up a lot of my time trying to get things to 
work under this kind of load.

Every developer looses the site because it becomes non functional.

I just re-enabled things . . ..

I really don't have any immediate solutions to how to deal w/ this. I'm 
open to suggestions. Proxy? Mirror for www portion of projects?
