JRuby improves performance with minor versions!

I've done some simple benchmarking with typo bloging engine and here is some graphs on this.
Benchmark was done on jruby and mri with untuned versions of ruby and openjdk 6.0 for jruby.

It's really awesome improvements! But we have a lot more room for further improvements!

Cygwin git-svn doesn't work

All JRuby maintainers use git-svn for managing their versioning. But jruby on github supported manually.
I've also try to use git-svn on my Windows machine and encounter an error:
fatal error - unable to remap cygdb-4.2.dll to same address as parent
After some googling I've found similar problem for python on cygwin(git-svn uses perl).
Again 2-step solution:
  1. Exit all Cygwin processes and stop all Cygwin services.Execute ash from Start/Run... or a cmd or command window. In my case that was ssh,init, svn services and cygwin terminal.
  2. /bin/rebaseall
