There were multiple ideas discussed in this thread. I would like to gather more

I may be alone here, but I actually found build/test(s) failure emails to be
super useful. The part that I did not find useful was that each time a
build/test(s) would fail on a particular platform, there would be two
comments/emails, which furthermore split the useful information into

Can you elaborate on that, how exactly is e-mailing on first failure useful to
Getting rid of Bugzilla comments was one of the goals of EWS rewrite, based on
engineering feedback about noise in bugs and in e-mail, and I wholeheartedly
agree with this feedback. So I think that
I think they are useful to actual and potential reviewers. Direct email to the
patch author is not something anyone can Cc themselves on, and is not archived,
so seems like a strictly worse form of communication.

My preference is still e-mailing the patch author directly (possibly, also
having an option to opt in for anyone). Bugzilla comments will always be
irrelevant for most people CC'ed on the bug, and they are almost always
undesirable to keep within the discussion flow.

Sounds good. I prefer the single comment when the first failure occur. That way

How about only a single comment when the first failure occurs? (Or else when
all bots pass, if there is never a failure.)
This should help the author, the reviewer, and anyone else cc’d, without being

I agree with your point that having some kind of notification might be useful.
