Thank you.

Yes, we should discuss this here, but we don’t have all that much time
left before the intern application process begins.  During that period
interns get to pick a project they are interested in and start getting
to know the community.  At the end of the application period we need to
pick one of the applicants.

So even though the internships won’t start before May, we really need to
submit our proposals this week or early next week.

Ok, I've thought about what my personal needs would be at first.
I currently see three main aspects of this user interface:

1. statistics overall
a. percentage of packages failing on a branch (with links)
b. percentage of packages not reproducible (also with links) (can be interesting in the face of the content addressable store idea, but would be useful in general)

2. packages, that we tried to build:
a. build status on achitectures
b. build logs
c. related bugs - can this be done easily?
d. related build jobs

3. packages, that we would like to build
a. estimated effort to do so
b. privilege system to do it
c. notification when a build completes
d. some way to make this useful for collaborations - (for example if a bunch of developers is working on a feature branch, and the feel, that it is ok to build it, then somehow sum the resources allowable?)

I am not very familiar with our current frontend yet, so if I have something, that is already done, please note me.

If you have any other suggestions, that would be fine.
