We can always create a build status mailing list and funnel everything

Sorry, I was not explicit here:
* Failure: job didn't finish (aborted to to some error)
* Unstable: some tests failed
What about specific states, like still-failing or still-unstable?

This really boils down to what kind of tests are being run, and how busy
is the build-slave queue.
Well, per commit strategy is unrealistic setup when trying to rerun everyting.

irc would be easier, email safer?
I prefer IRC, however QE does not cover all timezones. In such cases email
makes more sense.

how crowded is this env? do we have OSX slaves on it?
Pretty crowded but this does not mean we can't get some time there :-).
As for OS X slaves, they are especially crowded.
