It can take up to 24h (and more in case of errors).
It's there now, and there wasn't any error, so I guess it simply fell
into the "more than 20h yet less than 24h" window.

Some "internal status" report would be good, yes.

Good idea.  I've just changed it to run every 12h.

Even better would be for elpa.gnu.org to receive the commit-diffs
emails, and to only rebuild those packages that have seen changes, so it
can be done "immediately".  This would both be faster and more efficient.

I'd rather limit the access to those who administer the machine or
work on the build scripts.  Your needs really apply to most GNU ELPA
contributors, so if we give it to you, we'd also have to give it to
all others, or almost.
