The current setup of Rietveld in modules/rietveld uses sqlite3 as DATABASE_ENGINE ( This is not sufficient, SQLite is not optimized for multiple, concurrent access and would thus be way to slow in production (if it even works).

In addition, it causes e.g. some commands to fail from time to time when the daemon is running in the background. This includes our own provisioning process, so re-provisioning the host currently fails from time to time - unless the daemon has been manually stopped before.

There are some other issues as well, but altogether it's quite obvious that we need to set up a more sophisticated database system. We have both PostgreSQL and MySQL integrated with our Puppet code already, and the underlying Framework can deal with any of them, so either one should do fine.
