Rumor has it Trac is the new place to get-things-done. As such I'd like to improve the Trac user experience, particularly load times.

For example, see:

The current time-to-first-byte is painful. I'm requesting that someone improve this or alternatively that I be given a mirror of the Tor Trac system so I can try to improve performance w/o worrying about breaking critical infrastructure.

My first thought is that more internal caching needs to be turned on within Trac. It seems that common queries like the frontpage shouldn't be that hard. But they are inherently that hard, then we can at least spread Trac out among multiple, more powerful machines

I did a test with the current version. The time to first byte for the main page was 138 ms, the slowest element in the page needed ~250 ms for the first byte. The load time for the site was 2.2 s. So overall this seems OK to me.
