I wonder could we make it standard practice for an infra bug to get
filed whenever there's a known issue causing gate jobs to fail so that
everyone can use that bug number when re-triggering?

(Apologies if that's already happening)

I guess we'd want to broadcast that bug number with statusbot?

Basically, the times I've used 'reverify no bug' is where I see some job
failures that look like an infra issue that was already resolved.
