Whiteboard

2009-06-16 Did we ever get the benchmark results for the i586 rebuild for this? -robbie.w
2009-06-19 cjwatson: Canonical employees see https://rt.admin.canonical.com/Ticket/Display.html?id=34671 for the IS ticket; the snapshot has been taken and the buildds should be ready to go soon.
2009-07-02 cjwatson: The first build pass has completed, and the second is in progress.
2009-07-15 robbie.w: There were no performance gains observed from our testing with switching to i586, thus we will not pursue this feature.
