Also, with the new design, if the build monitor table doesn't fit into
the screen, it gets a separate scrollbar at the bottom of the screen,
which can be quite hard to reach (opposed to the browser window's
scrollbar). Eg. to find out the status of NetworkManager on openSUSE
10.3 / x86_64 here

one has to scroll the window down, then scroll the monitor table to the
right and then scroll the window back to top. With the old design, this
was much easier, because only the browser window had scrollbars.

Is this an oversight or is it intentional?

This was intentional because the overall design isn't able to handle pages
wider than the browser window. The top part of the layout doesn't scale
with the page but the browser window size. This looked ugly with the monitor
so we decided to make the table scrollable. In your case this is of course
an usability nightmare and has to be changed.

Yes, but plase not by changing the scrollbar, but by reducing the space, so I no longer need to scroll.


Possible improvements:
a) replace texts by short symbols (saves lot of space)
b) Correct title line:
<th colspan="2<strong>">Fedora_7</strong></th>
<th colspan="2<strong>">Fedora_Extras_6</strong></th>
<th colspan="1<strong>">Mandriva_2006</strong></th>
<th colspan="1<strong>">Mandriva_2007</strong></th>
--> The <strong> is at wrong place
--> Make the elements centered
c) For really lots of repositories (e.g. > 10) replace the names with
shorter abbreviations:
- remove spaces and "_"
- replace "linux" with L, "opensuse" with OS, "suse" with S,
"mandriva" with M and "fedora" with F (this should shorten most of
the possible names).
