Showing the buildqueue is easy but making predictions from the list is nearly impossible. There is a scheduling algorithm that tries to be fair but it cannot do much more than that.

Currently all builds are on the same machine and there is a limit of 2 parallel builds for this machine.

Sounds like a bug. I will have a look at that.

There is currently only one backend machine that is limited to two parallel builds. It is a 6 core Phenom II with 16GB Ram so performance is quite decent but more hardware will be needed over time. I would also like to get get some Tier-2 hardware like powerpc or sparc if there is enough interest. So organizing more hardware is on my todo but it will take some time.

No currently not but this is only a cosmetic thing and easy to fix. I've put it on my todo.
