It's quicker at our end (I think), but it seems to take longer for changes
(in the form or email notifications) to be delivered to the user who did
the bug reporting.
That is, when I want to respond to a notification I get on the gcc-prs
list, I can just reply in my mailer. My response eventually shows up.
If I go through the gnatsweb interface, it takes longer for me to do it,
but the resulting mail goes out sooner.
(Is this what you're talking about?)
I have a soft spot in my heart for the way Debian handles its bug reporting.
It's nearly all email based (with a web-based search interface). And it's
very easy to use, both for users and developers. But it's awfully slow.
(No telling how much of that is due to Debian network congestion, etc.)

not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you;
and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. - Samuel Adams
