The latter.

It is confusing. On the other hand if we remove the build results for
all packages then there's no useful info at all. Is partial info better
than none? Personally I rather agree with you, I argued for not
displaying any results until it was of sufficient quality. On the other
hand, if I'd had my way then perhaps there still wouldn't be any build
info at all!
