Blame game

I’ve mentioned the fancy distributed build system of Rockbox before, and now it just got even fancier as I’ve introduced a “blame” script that sends a mail to the commit mailing list (that gets mailed with a diff of every single commit) every time one or more builds in the automatic system show up red in the build table. Red builds are for errors (as opposed to yellow for just warnings or green for OK)…

The mail simply mentions that the builds are now red and who did the commit(s) that was included in the failing build. Due to the nature of it, it can be one or more committers and in fact there can be more commits than one from any of them. It’ll help us get alerted about the problems, and hopefully get them fixed again a little faster.
