However, it is very irritating when the status is not updated
promptly. I have to poll and poll, and don't see anything happening
anyhow. Commands that I issue don't seem to have any effect (trigger
rebuild). I don't even see if the buildservice _intends_ to build
something. Even if it happens eventually, I'm already used to the
fact that it may happen after a minute, after a day, you never know.

As user I need this feedback. Something like
("Scheduled" /) "Changed" / "Waiting ..." just as ACK for the last request.
If the subsequent status flags change too slowly i'd probably retrigger -
thats how people "think" ;) .

And, there is no way the buildservice tells me what's up, without the
need to poll for every bit, causing additional effort.

That makes working with the buildservice quite hard, frankly.
I feel I could easily do the same work in 50% of the time.

What can we do to improve on this?

Yes. Please.

Rebuild triggers not showing as scheduled, finished packages not
changing finished into error/successful, adding/removing packages not
showing up, ... That all is very disturbing. Somewhere here must be a
communication problem, which needs to be fixed.

A userinterface not responding to user request is very bad design.

well, the calculation of the dependencies completely is not a simple
task. Michael has some ideas how to improve it, but figuring out the
correct status immediatly will not be possible most likely.

What is thinkable from my personal view is to introduce a "dirty" flag,
what marks the current status as invalid and to be calculated ...

After a "trigger rebuild" request, the status is quite obvious to me:
True .

My brain seems to be fast enough for that :-)
LOL, see above. Let's upgrade the OBS hardware ;) .
