Its nice that executing jobs now shows ETA. It will be helpful if it can show
what it is doing at the moment. As I see, Hudson job is comprised of few tasks
that get executed in order. It could show a brief description on the task being
executed, like CVS check out, ant build, archiving artifacts etc. This would
save a click to see what it is doing.
Also, for the failed job on mouse over the build could show at what step it
failed. With J.N cvs down so many times, I don't have to go to the console
output and scroll to the end to see the problem is with SCM co. With this I can
easily see its some problem CVS co, and rest easy.
