When the build master is restarted, sheriffbot starts thinking that builds/tests have failed. It needs to chill out!

This has happened multiple times today, including just now.

sheriff-bot knows to ignore lost builders.  but I guess he needs to be taught what restarts look like.

What do they look like?

This is the file which decides what are failures to complain about, btw:

Every build gets interrupted at once. They all go "purple" due to an exception being thrown.

"lost" in that text should be enough to make buildbot.py treat them as green.

If they were failing before, it's possible it would then report "new" failures when they come back, and go from "green" to red.

SB no longer watches builders, so this is probably obsolete now.
