i belive showing the live progress of the jobs is effectivly a ddos vector.
infra have ask that we not use javascript to pool the the live status of the jobs
in our browser in the past.

providing a link to the running zuul objs that are not actively pooling might be nice at least for the 1st party ci.
there might be a way for 3rd party ci to post a link to the builds or something for there results.
my concern would still remain though with anything that does active pooling ddosing the zuul api.

i know that we previously tried enbeding the zuul job status directly into gerrit a few years ago and that had to be qickly
reverted as it does not take many developers leave review open in a tab to quickly make that unworkable.
i know i for one often leave review open over night if im pinged to review something shortly before i finish for the
day so that its open on my screen when i log in the next day. if that tab was activly pooling ci jobs that would be an issue
if many people did it. if it was just as static liknk on the other hand to the job build it would not have the same downside.

so i guess it depend on if you want live updates of the running jobs or just a one of server side generated static
link to the running job that you can click though to look at its console output.

the latter might be nice but i am not sure the former is a good idea for the reason i mentioned.
