The ASF-hosted buildbot can report on IRC (to a channel or in privmsg) the
status of builds. There was disagreement today on #svn-dev whether it's
desired. What do people think of having the bot notify on IRC
(a) after every failed build?
(b) on the first failed build after a series of successful builds?
(c) on the first successful build after a series of failed builds?
If you want to test this:
/msg subversion-bot help notify
/msg subversion-bot notify on successToFailure failureToSuccess
This is the output of the former command:
<subversion-bot> Usage: notify on|off|list [<EVENT>] ... - Notify me about build events. event should be one or more of: 'started', 'finished', 'failure', 'success', 'exception' or 'xToY' (where x and Y are one of success, warnings, failure, exception, but Y is capitalized)
