I just started with buildbot 9 (and have a little experience with
In our environment we have about 50 different git repositories and about
100 builders (between 1 and 4 builders per repo).
Each repository has up to 20 branches which can be grouped into
production branches, integration branches and developer branches.
I'd like create notifications whenever:
- a given branch changes it's build status
- a build has been performed on a new branch
I was reading through the documentation of the reporters and I saw,
that MailNotifier has a 'mode' attribute which I could set to 'change'.
However if I understand correctly I would not achieve what I wanted.

Is there any such functionality available? If yes, where can I get more
Does anybody else have a similar issue? If yes, how do you deal with it?
If this is not available. Do you have any advice of how I could
implement this within buildbot with a self written Reporter (plugin),
which had to be able to remember/access the most recent build status for
I thought alternatively about an HTTP push notification to another self
written server who is then dealing with the notifications but this might
However I wonder how stable this would be if a notification got lost due
to network issues. I assume, that a 'timed-out' notification will not be
resent at a later time.
