It's a huge waste of time that you are no longer informed when a build fails on EWS. This seriously delays urgent work, as you only start working on fixes when you happen to manually poll, or even worse, when a reviewer tells you to.

It's good to not spam everyone, but patch author should be notified by EWS immediately I think. Some ideas:

- e-mail;
- IRC;
- browser notifications when bug page is open.

The latter might be best, as it also gives some control over whether to get pinged - keep the bug open if you care, close it if it's not urgent, and you cannot afford distraction now.

If we do this, it should be opt-in.  At least in my workflow, this would be more annoying than helpful.
