Hi Everyone,

commit-queue should be much faster now (after https://webkit.org/b/208938). For 
e.g. in https://ews-build.webkit.org/#/builders/28/builds/117 commit-queue took 
~2 minutes to commit. This is because commit-queue now skips layout tests if 
the mac-wk2 ews is already green. Also builds are usually fast since EWS does 
incremental builds. This feature was there in old commit-queue but was mostly 

I also want to get some feedback on 'https://webkit.org/b/208941 regarding how 
should commit-queue handle build/test failures on other EWSes. Following might 
be few options, please feel free to add anything.

#1: Whenever a builder or tester fail, it will set commit-queue flag to cq-. 
This would also result in bugzilla sending a notification email to the patch 
author and cced people. Anyone can still cq+ the patch and commit-queue will 
commit it. This is similar to old EWS behavior.

#2: commit-queue should check the patch status on few specific builders (e.g.: 
ios, mac, mac-debug, gtk, wpe etc), and do not commit if any of those EWS is 
red. This might make it little difficult for people to override EWS false 
positive (that's why this check should be implemented only for builders).

#3: commit-queue should wait for all EWSes to be green (this might not be very 
practical given that we have various flaky tests which sometimes create false 
positive, or one particular queue might get backlogged sometimes due to issues 
on bots).
