There will be 2 new features coming soon:
- a compile time estimator

You select your CPU type and copy&paste your emerge -p output and the system will tell you how long it might take.

- "notify me if I have updates"
You store a list of installed packages or a group of packages you want to monitor on this server and when one of your packages gets an update, you will be notified via email (including changelog and description of the package)

But before those 2 feature can go online for the public, we need sample material for feature 1

So, if you like the feature and you want to support it, please do the following:

send an email with the header "compiletime" and the output of "cat /proc/cpu" and an output of "genlop -ntl" to feature (a)
Please attach above files as simple text files.

The genlop output should be like this:
Wed Oct 18 17:25:11 2006 >>> x11-libs/libnotify-0.4.3
merge time: 55 seconds.

Wed Oct 18 17:28:52 2006 >>> x11-wm/metacity-2.16.3
merge time: 3 minutes and 41 seconds.

There is a patch for genlop available that automatically queries this database.
Please take a look at Compile Time Estimator for instructions.
