I started to work on this, but the term "pending run" is quite confusing, it seems this term has different meaning on this dashboard page and the Buildbot.

As far as I know, Buildbot has "pending build request", which is a revision that needs to be processed, but it's not started yet. It also has "current build", that is an actually started, but still running build. Most builders could only have 0 or 1 running builds, those who has multiple buildslaves, can have more running builds.

The dashboard displays "pending build" or "pending test run", but it's in fact not Buildbot's "pending build request", but it's the number of currently running builds/tests. 

Which one would you like to see detailed on this Dashboard page?
I assume you'd like to see both lists (running and waiting jobs), as it would make more sense (example scenario: builder tree is red, 2 patches are currently running, but there's 3 more waiting for processing, and one of them is a buildfix for the current build breakage).

So, what should we do?

Option A: to have two separate lists, one for waiting tasks ("pending build request" as Buildbot calls it), and a second list for currently running builds.

Option B: to merge those lists together some way, and also sum up the numbers of the waiting and running builds.
