Re: [opensuse-buildservice] Estimation on waiting time on a package.

I think it depends how much the estimation is wrong. If it says 10
minutes when it's 6 hours, I think it's not good. But if it says
like 1 hour when it's 2, it might still be ok. At least it can help
someone to decide whether it's worth waiting a few minutes/hours, or
simply give up and check the next day.

The time estimation for one package could be based on heuristics
from its compile time history. For example, if after compliling a
given package a few times we found out that it usually takes say 30
minutes to build successfully, then we can assume that in the future
it will take almost as long, if not longer.

Also like Doiggl said, it would be also good to know how many
packages are in the queue. A value like "5234 packages scheduled to
be built before yours, 1234 currently building" might do it.

When your project is blocked in the queue because it is waiting for
something to build e.g(binutils) can a time estimate be given as to how
long to wait before it may start processing - put that estimation on the
'Package AAA (Project BBB home:CCC)' page when you view the page.
One could implement something, but it will not be very reliable, because
the state and order can change with any further submission.

I suggest to file a feature request using

But first:What to others think? Do you consider such an estimate ok? Or
should we not publish anything since it might change too often?
