1.2 The status of the system will be saved in the database. Must Have 1 days done
1.3 The information about whether there were warnings or errors on each build phase will also be saved in the database. Must Have 2 days done
1.4 The User Interface of the rebuild window will be changed. Instead of showing the log, the build phases will be shown, and they will be marked as they are being completed. If there were warnings or errors in any of the build phases, they will be marked as such. Must Have 5 days done

1.8 The "build version" should be saved in the database and in the files so that it can be verified that the generated files were indeed deployed to tomcat Nice to Have 1 day Not done
1.9 Revision of the build process to make it reliable Must Have* (will not be fully completed) 3 days done
