Just wonder, how many Gnodes are in one wu for OGR-25?

If I am remembering correctly, the number of Gnodes varies depending on the "stub"
being worked on. Some take longer to evaluate than others, and have a correspondingly higher Gnode value.

rshepard is correct. They will vary in gnodes, but the stats are based on gnodes and not wu's.

... meaning, you get the same credit for a workunit ("stub") that's 100GNodes big as you get for 2 stubs being 50 GNodes big each. The stats are counted in GNodes anyway.

This means you cannot predict how long a stub will take to be completed. The same reason makes it impossible to say how the long project takes to completion since nobody knows how many nodes there are. The counter on the stats page is based on the number of stubs (that vary in size, in their number of nodes), but the calculation should be reasonably correct.
