Hi Blars et al., has anyone every considered a check in the buildd infrastructure to alert someone (buildd admin and/or others) if a build is taking too long (eg openoffice usually takes between 2-3 hours to build and the current build has been building for 10 hours+). Something like a database entry or a database of either previous build times or last build time. As a way to not have a buildd tied up with an obvious build issue and thus allow the issue to be address sooner thus alowing more buildd throughput. I'd help but I have neither the skill nor the access to buildd infrastrure (as I'm not a DD or a buildd admin) but try to give ideas that I feel are helpful. Anyway, hope those buildd (and thier admins) are humming along smoothly!
