Subject Re: HBase TRUNK build 2616 hangs
Date Sat, 07 Jan 2012 13:57:16 GMT
In addition, while the build is waiting on the executor to acquire the
lock, it is reported as running on the master.

E.g. the axis2-1.6 #225 build right now shows:

"Started 42 min agoBuild is being executed for 42 min on master"
