Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Jenkins notifications to dev list?
Date Thu, 14 Jul 2016 21:49:48 GMT
But, at the same time, if we're going to be using this as a reliable 
means for whether or not our tests are passing (which I would expect all 
developers to be doing), it should be written down like we do for other 
developer-related knowledge.

I don't see why we can't present it with the caveats you state. It feels 
like we're starting a boys-club if we have something we're going to rely 
upon for development that we don't tell anyone about...
