Email committers on jenkins compile+test failures
Can we make a jenkins hook to email committers since the last successful build upon build failure?
One reason that this has not been done in the past is because jenkins often has false positives in the form of dead/bad/incomplete build environments.
So: How about this hook only bother to email people if a build has made it past ./configure and into actual compilation stage?
Sure, there may be random things like ASAN executables that fail to run because of a bug in the new ASAN version for a platform, but that just means we should write autoconf tests to catch things like that.
