Waiting report

Documentation about the smos-query waiting command, for a report of what you are waiting for sorted by how long you have been waiting for it

The waiting report shows you all of the entries that you are waiting for input from others for.

There is a default threshold of 7 days for what "too long" means in "you have been waiting for too long, better go ping them". You can change this default via configuration, and you can use the waiting_threshold property to override it on a per-entry basis.
