It seems not to happen this morning. In general, after how much time
after commit should we get worried and report it?

It says:

 $AUTHOR commited a patch related to this issue to "$BRANCH"

That's misleading. See e.g.
Committed by Tor, but authored by Cédric. The message in the bug says
"Cédric committed".

I would suggest one of:

 A patch by $AUTHOR related to this issue was committed to "$BRANCH"

(should it be "has been committed" maybe?)


 $COMMITTER committed a patch by $AUTHOR related to this issue to "$BRANCH"

 $AUTHOR's patch related to this issue was/has been committed to "$BRANCH"
