The PPA page should warn if publication is turned off

Bug Description

I did an upload that scored as private+partner+low (=12505 score) and the Launchpad frontend takes account of this displaying:

  "Start in 1 minute" (12505)

however, even after hour(s) the package still remains "Start in 1 minute". I personally don't mind when it gets built, but I'm wondering if there's a disconnect between the frontend and backend priority mechanisms. Ideally the "1 minute" should either be replaced with the estimated length of the queue (at insertion time), or a higher-priority job should get the higher priority.

See also bug #690561 for fixing the help text next to the "Publish" button to state what it actually does.

I am told that this is because the "publish" flag was turned off on the PPA, and private PPAs need source published as a pre-requisite to building.

We should add a big warning on the PPA pages if the publish flag is off, with a link to turn it on again. In addition, if the PPA is private and it's off, we should warn that no builds will be dispatched.

Changed in soyuz:
status: New → Triaged
importance: Undecided → Low
summary: - "Start in 1 minute" shown for hours despite 12505 points
+ The PPA page should warn if publication is turned off
