Description Toralf Förster gentoo-dev 2012-11-09 09:13:19 UTC
eg. when upgrading KDE it would be nice to see something like 'package n#m' - or '<n> packages left'

4 years old ...
Comment 2 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2016-01-31 19:05:54 UTC
How is this obsolete when qlop -c still doesn't do that?
Comment 3 Toralf Förster gentoo-dev 2016-01-31 19:10:08 UTC

I didn't found a better tag for a use case like "4 years old, of nobody cares, throw away all hope ..."
Comment 4 Dennis Schridde 2016-01-31 23:20:04 UTC
Please reopen, for those still hoping that one day ...

that isn't how we handle bugs here.  if the request is still relevant, then it should stay active.
Comment 6 Fabian Groffen gentoo-dev 2019-01-31 12:09:12 UTC
need to look into the details, but it seems doable to me, since qlop already parses the (x of y) bit to check it's comparing the same merge process
Comment 7 Fabian Groffen gentoo-dev 2019-02-27 20:56:54 UTC
this should be easier to do after
