Do the number of pull request impact bitbucket performance?

If a repository we own has many open pull requests would that impact performance of Bitbucket at all? 

For example, would 5000 open pull requests negatively impact a Git repository hosted on Bitbucket?

Hi Stephen,

Unfortunately, the number of open PRs does impact the performance of a repo. One specific case I know this to be true is for merges. For some background, each comment in a PR has a link to not only the file and the specific lines but also to a specific commit. When a PR is merged, the comments in all PRs that target the same branch as the PR being merged need to be drifted to the latest version.

While I am not a developer on the Bitbucket team I think it is not likely. Most likely the Pull Request page is paginated so that, no matter how many PR's you have, they only load a number of them at a time: giving them fixed performance times.
