first: thanks for the webgui update - it brings lots of useful features.

second: the new search (which also accepts substrings) is very good!

third: sorry that the rest of this mail sounds somewhat like criticism -
it isn't meant that way ;-)

Agreed, this icon is indeed confusing. And I'm afraid it could cause
lots of unneeded triggered rebuilds :-(

Please try to find a better icon for "trigger rebuild" that does not
look like a "refresh" icon. (Maybe you can use the blue rack-wheel that
is also used for enabled builds in enable/disable building.)

Other possible enhancements:
- add "trigger rebuild" icons to every target to rebuild a specific
target only
- the "enabled" icon in enable/disable building is meant as a good idea,
but IMHO too eye-catching. Maybe icons for disabled targets only would
be enough. Or use less flashy icons for active targets.
Thinking about it, I'd say:
- grey rack-wheel for enabled builds
- grey rack-wheel with red "x" for disabled builds
- keep blue (enabled) vs. grey (disabled) font color in arch column
- also apply blue / grey font color on the target column
- oh, and please use the same icon for "disabled target" (like Factory)
and "disabled arch" (like i586) - I propose a rack-wheel with "x" in
both cases.
- the "help about..." dropdown should open the requested page in a new
window. Otherwise it's not unlikely to loose unsaved changes (for
example spec file edits)

Sorry that I put all these things in one mail - I know it mixes up this
mail a bit. OTOH, it would be overkill to write a separate mail for
each of them ;-) If you want to have separate threads and/or
bugreports out of them, just ask.
