After we enabled the change notifier we found at least one case where automation repeatedly makes the same change to the database many times. This is silly, and unnecessarily invalidates caches. We should try to make clients smarter about this where we can, but we can also do better on the backend and simply check if things will change prior to making a write.

We should watch out for potential performance penalties when it comes to Releases. Single locale updates already need to retrieve the current version of the blob before changing it, but updates to Release blobs that intend to replace the full contents may not already retrieve the entire blob already.

Not at the moment. Still busy with the gsoc project. So, I'll unassign the bug for now.
