> Today, a broken master is only spotted when somebody tracks down a broken Gerrit build to be due to a broken master (or when somebody doing their own local build with a sufficiently similar setup spots it). That can delay fixing unnecessarily, causing many developers to meanwhile base their Gerrit changes on a broken master.
Such a bot should trigger on commits in git, I do that on my own vms. However I think we would need 3 bot (windows, linux, osx) as many of the build breakers are platform dependent.
When a build breaker is seen, it is normally acted upon very fast (THANKS a lot) so having such bots, would likely reduce the time where master cannot build to a few hours. This measure would eliminate the need to trace the last commit where master builds (a suggested idea to help especially new people).
How can we make this happen ?
have a nice weekend.
