The data store discussion was I think two years ago around the time of 
pycon.  I started it with a thread entitled "Architecture for extra 
profile info"


(As Sumana says, mail-archive is usually the best bet for searching the 
mailman archives.  I searched locally, though.)

But I'm serious that it's only worth reading if you're incredibly bored. 
  It became a huge architecture discussion that only ended on the lists 
with an "agree to disagree." (and I got bombarded with further comments 
about it on IRC for months after the list discussion ended, so I'm 
actually kind of still cranky about it.)

I think it's still a thing we need to look in to more seriously, but be 
warned that it's a topic folk have been passionate about in the past, to 
the point where progress was not made.  On the other hand, one of the 
people involved in that discussion has moved on to other things and the 
rest of us do collaborative work together more frequently, so it might 
be easier to reach a solution now.
