#17 Clarify Repo status importing/analyzing messages


When a (git?) repo is being imported or re-analyzed, the repo browser shows "Repo status: analyzing/importing" with a rotating icon in front of it.

This strongly suggests it's something that the browser client is doing/loading, and will be ready shortly, so the rotating icon is a bit misleading, I think. (Since as far as I understand these processes are server-side and will take some time.)

A small explanation on what to do ("Check back in 5 minutes", "Check back tomorrow", "See the old repo at...") would probably be nice too.

    I got this message after upgrading my SF project 'freesteam' to the new Allura platform. Message doesn't make it clear what is being done (and why does Allura say the upgrade is 'completed' if the source code remains inaccessible?)

    I'm still waiting for 2 days and the message "Repo status importing" will not go away, nor can I acces with CVS.

    No, this ticket was not placed here by mistake. It's a feature request.

    Sorry, I read the first comment ("why does Allura say the upgrade is 'completed' if the source code remains inaccessible?").
