It is much better to keep each issue as a separate item.
I am closing this item, and opening new items for each issue.

Another suggestion is to add another tab in "Package Configuration" showing the README contents.

oops! Sorry! Now I noticed the Description field. So discard the suggestion number 2. Thank you!

Two nice features that sourceinstall could have are the following:

1) a field with the total time of compilation (this way when we upgrade we can estimate how much it will takes to compile). It's not "remaining time" (although it would be interesting, but dificult to implement I think), but a field with a total time of the compilation. It would be inserted at the end of the package building; It's like running "time make" and saving the results.

2) a comment field. Sometimes I want to write some comments about a package like "this is needed for package X" or something like that.
