Found a similar question on another site; I need to use Properties to access the commits data. Guess the answer was so easy that was not even worth to reply  or to write it down on the manual, in more details

Still I am not able to get the results that I want, so probably I need to accept that I can't use Buildbot.
>From what I can tell, I am not fit to use it (and looking at the comments online, seems like I am not the only one that has problems to find simple answers); nor I have the time to learn how it works looking at its code. And this list is not like a support forum, like it happens for other products; so I understand that simple questions are a hassle for most of the expert users here.

Thanks for everything. I really enjoyed using Buildbot. Time to try something else . 
Please feel free to remove my subscription; I don't even remember the credentials to close my account.

Best of luck for this awesome product. I hope that one day, it will be more accessible to newcomers, as the other competitors are.

I've used the example in the messageFormatter function, to retrieve build changes, but it seems that something is wrong with the example, since it raise errors when I restart the master (I pasted it as is in my config file; another mailNotifier is working fine, so I suppose that the code for this specific messageFormatter is not correct)

Nor I can find which one is the object that contain these info, while a builder is running.
