I noticed that yesterday. Neat!

If I may make some wishes:

  1. Add changecommentlink/revlink for WebStatus to point to trac/github. :)
  2. Add MailNotfifierStatus so that the commits-list gets mails of 
build results. (Perhaps with mode='change' so that only changes between 
good/bad are reported.)

I'll have a look at the console jinja exception. The specific error 
shouldn't appear, but it might have something to do with my 
undefined-replacement. (I try to catch more errors than default, which 
is quite helpful, but in this instance it's being overzealous.)

Also, w.r.t. result-mails, for the bright shiny future, I suppose some 
kind of detection code (+ test result db) to check for new failures in a 
build would be a good thing, then we could get mails as different tests 
change their fail/pass status, not just the entire build's result. (As 
many builders are continously failing to run all tests.)

This goes a bit in hand with the buildsystem I'm cooking in parts of my 
free time. It's a kind of meta-buildsystem that helps in a heterogenous 
build environment by just ordering different tasks together. (It's grown 
out of a bunch of Ant and some Beanshell-scripts. I plan to 
steal^h^h^h^h^hborrow some code from pyant, but do something less XML-ish.)
