It must be so nice to just "find" quad core machines around ;-)

Awesome !!! I'm a very happy person now :-) Having trunks reports with
fast turnarounds back is great news. And now that it's working I can
devote my Linux server to other testing tasks. Like making the report
generation take some advantage of multi-cpu machines. And getting the
incremental testing work accurately.

Most welcome... And many thanks for volunteering the CPU cycles and
internet bandwidth.

OK, I'll file that for future reference.

Doug, I still want to take advantage of the possible OSL machine for
running reports. But perhaps for running the release report generation.
That way Beman isn't burdened with them. And just for the plain aspect
of having redundancy. And even perhaps we can afford to run results on
other branches.
