It would be nice if the Image Information 'tab' (in both the lighttabe and the darkroom) would also display the dimensions of the image after cropping.
And maybe the lighttable could also show what the smallest value for each dimension in the currently displayed collection (or maybe the selection?) is, so you can quickly see if you need to worry about your export dimensions

For export that information is not needed. If you want maximum size just use
0 in the export module, and if you want to have the long side of fixed size and the small one scaled accordingly just set the same value for both dimensions. darktable will fit the image into the square, i.e., scale the long side to the desired value and make the short one smaller.
It is probably still a bit of data people might be interested in.

The reason I used that export example was to use the data so you could easily have the maximum sized output, while still keeping all the exported images the same size, or to make sure there isn't one image that is too cropped for your desired export size.
