[Buildbot-devel] Why no ETA (sometimes)?

I didn't realize how useful Buildbot's ETA feature was until I started
using BB for production builds that our QA team is waiting for.  It

But now the ETA seems to have gone away from the waterfall page.  Two
obvious recent changes: 1) we've moved our build system to new
hardware so it runs faster and 2) I've been tinkering with master.cfg
a lot, and consequently restarting BB a lot.  Now I *have* seen some
ETAs since moving to the new hardware, so I'm assuming that restarting
BB screws up ETA calculations.  Is this correct?  If so, any plans to
fix it by persisting whatever is needed to calculate ETA?
