Hi Everyone,

We had this long-standing issue with the EWS bubbles that many engineers were 
confused whether a queue was build-only, test-only or build-and-test.

For e.g.: https://webkit.org/b/152790
Simon Fraser 2016-01-06: "From the EWS bubbles you can't tell if a bot is a 
build-only bot, or a build-and-test bot. All this time I've been assuming that 
GTK was running tests, and that assumption was wrong."

To solve that, we recently added emojis in the status-bubbles. Builder queues 
will only have builder emoji, tester queues will only have tester emoji, and 
build-and-test queues will have both builder and tester emojis. Also, we have 
separated most of the build-and-test queues into separate builder queues and 
tester queues. These changes should help in clarifying which queue does what. 
The emojis we have used are:

Builder: ๐Ÿ› ๏ธ (https://emojipedia.org/hammer-and-wrench/)

Tester: ๐Ÿ”ฌ (https://emojipedia.org/microscope/)

The emoji for tester doesn't feel very appropriate, and I am curious to know if 
anyone has a better suggestion. I previously used ๐Ÿงช 
(https://emojipedia.org/test-tube/), but this emoji was added to Unicode last 
year only, and older OSes don't have this emoji. So I switched to the current 
(microscope) emoji in https://webkit.org/b/201532.

Please let me know if anyone has suggestions for better emojis. If not, atleast 
this email would let people know the purpose of these emojis.
