[Haskell-cafe] is it normal for docs to be pending for 24 hours?

As an update -- the builder had a few other issues besides disk-space
in terms of getting a better retry policy in place, and properly
prioritizing new over older packages, etc. I think as of this morning
they're finally all worked through and it seems to be slowly chugging
through the backlog in a reasonable order, prioritizing new
uploads.I'll be checking in on the logs daily for the time being to
make sure it does't seem to be getting stuck.

If your docs haven't built and you're impatient (understandably so!),
please don't bump your package version to kick the priority -- that'll
just put more metadata on the server we don't need. Instead, you can
build and upload your own docs as in this sample shell script:

Its now running again but doing some catching up. (And lots of stuff in the queue it failed to build due to other problems needs to be replaced there, which is a manual process at the moment if we don’t want the queue as a whole to just drown out any new things at all with backlog). It would be much better to expose more queues and have better monitoring (and real prioritization), and another volunteer to help ben out on this would be very welcome (please contact me if you’re interested — the code lives at https://github.com/haskell/hackage-server/blob/master/BuildClient.hs and there’s some uncommitted work on queuing as well).
