There are three orthogonal approaches to this problem:
(a) The only one working right now: check for green checkmarks or red
crosses in commit log, for example
The list does not get corrections for forced builds (or maybe it would
if I clicked "rebuild" instead of "force build"). It might be possible
to hack buildbot configuration to find the correct commit (maybe we
should do this anyway). If multiple ports are built in the same
commit, you'll get just the result of the latest build, I think.
There's some room for improvements here, but it's a killer feature
(b) We are looking for a front-end developer willing to look into some
react.js/vue.js black magic to talk to buildbot
(c) As Ryan mentioned, there was a student proposal for GSOC this year
to address this exact issue in a standalone website.
(Accepted projects will be announced on 23rd April. If selected, the
work should be done by the end of the summer.)
