The cycle time between updates of the web site was around 9 hours - gump 
was reporting about 5 hours for the run (so we are already seeing a big 
improvement on that aspect). In addition there is that mystery 4 hours 
between the end of the run and the appearance off documentation.

Just an observation - that way things are using the current setup is 
"for me" better.  Ok the docs are not a nice but what I can see 
immediately is the following:

   (a) a message saying "gump is running and it started at ..."
   (b) result as they unfold which gives me more time to hit the
       issue (e.g. I figure I've fixed james during the last run
       because I was able to access the info before the run had

Things I wasn't too impressed with was the dirty big red banner 
complaining about my subversion of build.sysclasspath which kind of made 
me cringe.

Nope - never.
I'll leave that sort of thing to Niclas!

Watching the interactive progress you get a feel for this as well - gump 
kicks off and rips though the early entries but things get progressively 
slower.  But the end of the run she's not showing the same degree
