1 I can't speak for the merit of your idea or implementation, but here's
2 an idea for you... portage should keep track of how long it has taken
3 in the past to merge various packages on the current machine and use
4 that as an indicator for how long it will take to build the current
5 package. This cache could be preloaded with guesstimated numbers if
6 you want, but the nice thing is that it would be customized to the
7 local machine's typical performance on a per-package basis, and
8 wouldn't require continued network access to function.
10 Regards,
