[opensuse-buildservice] Status latency in

what's the reason for the latency in status displays on b.o.o?

When I enable building for a previously disabled arch, it took several
minutes to update the status from "disabled" to building/blocked.

I understand that this is partly due to the scheduler re-run needed, but
because that time is not known or exposed, one looks through all the
expert settings to figure out what one has done wrong, or if there isn't
a flag one overlooked.

Sometimes the same happens between "finished" to "succeeded", or when
the build has finished when the buid log seems to switch from "live" to
"archived", there's a gap there the build has finished (possibly failed)
but the log then still shows the outdated one - which build fine or
aborted with a different error.

It's a usability nightmare.

Can't we at least - if the latencies can't be reduced for some reason -
immediately wipe the outdated state? I'd rather see a "Please wait"
message until the next scheduler run instead of wrong information.
