[Buildbot-devel] Consoldate Build Failure Emails?

Yes, I thought about doing something like that, but discarded the idea because it's not flexible enough for our implementation of buildbot. We use a custom change filter to fire off builders dynamically, and using triggers to guide this isn't a viable solution. I think we've found a temporary solution to this problem for now. I won't go into it because it's too specific to our alterations of the buildbot code to be of any use to anyone else.

Have you tried something like this?


Connect the change source to a builder which does nothing but trigger the other builders (synchronously), and configure the email status target to only look at the first builder.

I'm not sure what the resulting email looks like, but I think it will list which dependent builders have failed.
