Did you guys not get the newsletter? Dreamhost themselves stated in that very newsletter that DB's should take no more than 5-10 minutes to set-up. Now, are they referring to the act of actually setting up a DB or propogation of a DB or both?
They should probably clarify that considering I don't recall the "setting-up" process to take more than five minutes to begin with.
