Ruby on low memory systems
I am using Gitlab (http://gitlabhq.com) for a while as my private (free) github clone. Works great, but it is in Ruby which seems to be kind of a memory hog. It works with nginx server, so web server weight shouldnt be the problem. I am currently using it on a large box, but thinking about moving it to a smaller one as I have found need for the larger box and nginx + apache2 on port 80 seems pretty difficult to handle (or it might be with iptables). So I think about splitting those 2 up.
Any advice and minimum memory requirements? It looks like about 256mb ram now for ruby + gitlabhq install, which is pretty much for a site only used by about 5 users.
