Description Johannes Rauh 2009-12-01 14:35:40 UTC
When there is an error in the log, then genlop -c does not output a realistic value.  For example, genlop seems to have a problem parsing my logfile for the package sci-mathematics/singular:

~ $ genlop -t singular
 * sci-mathematics/singular

     Thu Apr  3 18:19:40 2008 >>> sci-mathematics/singular-3.0.3
       merge time: log error; merge time unknown.

     Fri Apr 11 11:19:58 2008 >>> sci-mathematics/singular-3.0.3
       merge time: 12 minutes and 18 seconds.

     Tue Apr 22 15:51:56 2008 >>> sci-mathematics/singular-
       merge time: 27 minutes and 42 seconds.

     Thu Jan 22 16:42:02 2009 >>> sci-mathematics/singular-
       merge time: 15 minutes and 5 seconds.

     Wed Feb 25 10:33:06 2009 >>> sci-mathematics/singular-
       merge time: 12 minutes and 36 seconds.

     Tue Jun 16 15:29:18 2009 >>> sci-mathematics/singular-3.1.0
       merge time: 8 minutes and 15 seconds.

~ $ genlop -c

 Currently merging 1 out of 1

 * sci-mathematics/singular-

       current merge time: 23 seconds.
       ETA: any time now.

The expected behaviour: Genlop should ignore all entries which it does not understand, and the estimated time should be the mean of the remaining values.
