I have added the ability to parse error logs in EWS for Windows and WinCairo as
well (in https://trac.webkit.org/r265391).
It seems to be working fine. For example, in
https://ews-build.webkit.org/#/builders/10/builds/33343, in step #8 WebKit
failed to compile. Now, the 'errors' log is also present, containing only 1
line which is the relevant error. Hopefully this would make it easier to spot
the relevant errors from large logs.
Please let me know if you notice any issue or have any feedback..
