The fail did show up post merge. And we have builds almost per commit. (I'm working on it!) Trunk broke here: https://ci-cassandra.apache.org/job/Cassandra-trunk/13/ And you fixed it here: https://ci-cassandra.apache.org/job/Cassandra-trunk/15/ And a broken build email was sent out ( see bottom of https://ci-cassandra.apache.org/job/Cassandra-trunk-artifacts/10/console ) Currently this only emails the committers/authors if the artifact stage breaks. Committers, is there any objection that over time as things stabilise we should slowly ratchet this up, so breakages and later non-flakey test failures, on any stage are emailed? regards, Mick
