Well, this was _my thought_ (season to taste). I was going to add a
colored column to the last built ports page, build summary page, and
port breakdown page that indicated if a failure occurred. The text of
the box would be the reason tag (max 20 characters), and the color of
the box would represent if the failure was COMMON, RARE, or TRANSIENT
(TRANSIENT being the most benign to the end user).
The reason tag would be a hyperlink. If the mouse was placed over the
link, a tooltip pop-up would appear with the first few lines of the
reason description. If the tag was clicked, the user would be
redirected to the reason summary page which would be built on-the-fly,
and contain all failure reason tags, types, and descriptions.
I'm not sure if this is too much, or not enough. It's just what I was
thinking of doing.
