Hello Robert & Jan-Hendrik,

Yes that's really important!
Even if the server sends some lines, but ". . ." is obviously not our
expected output.

Yes a root shell for Robert (like I already have it for the listserver)
makes very much sense!
Would be really cool if we could switch to 3.8.0-dev during the next week -
I guess that would give typo3.org a huge speed improvement.

I don't know. However if the server doesn't use an accelerator yet, you
might want consider using eAccelerator (ex turck-mmcache) which is
available for free of charge and also giving great results.

Right. I'd say there are two problems: Availability and speed. The first one
is more important, but the 2nd could also help a lot.

Good night!
