do_write_packages is one of "lowest priority" tasks as nothing in build 
depend on them. So they are started at then end of whole build. 

When I started my last build first lot of packages started to 
fetch/unpack/patch (independent tasks), then some of them started to 
configure (here some depends on do_populate_staging of others) and 
compile (depend on configure ones). After compile they start to install, 
package and stage (order is set in configs). Creating of packages (can be 
few formats) is done after all those tasks are done. For big builds it 
can take a lot of time until first packages will be generated.

               Life's not fair. But the root password helps.
