Hello,
Just a query in relation to the build service.
In relation to Ram(memory) and Disk, I know things get done quicker in ram
than on disk.

Question: Could a ram disk be utilized do the compilation of
packges/projects/rpms in faster memory instead of slower disk ?

The build logs/completed rpms/are then copied off to disk, and the ramdisk
is cleared off before the next project starts compiling.
Get more packages done in the same amount of time.
Extra Ram costs money but there would be a benefit as well.

Just a suggestion, worth a try, comments welcome.
Glenn
