Bug Description

Hi,

There are no options to cancel a request for build a recipe.

There might have a button to cancel the request to avoid useless builds.

Cheers,

Rémi

We would like that, but our architecture doesn't yet provide a clean way
of cancelling builds.

It doesn't seem hard to cancel a build that is not yet running, but there are race conditions that mean we might attempt to cancel a build that is already running, and this would end badly.

A way to cancel a build that is already running would also be useful.

I think that this bug's 'Importance' should be increase to at least 'High' because when a failure in the build bots occur, I think many people (including myself) will probably want to cancel their request. This will hopefully cause the number of requests to decrease, which helps in the recovery phase after the bots are back online. When they cancel them, they would then be able to build it manually and fix and update it, without wasting as the bots' resources.
