Subject Re: Access to Jenkins instance, questions about CI

Thanks Alexander!

I seem to have config access to the jobs now, which is what I needed.
Thank you :) It looks like your email will be notified on
configuration changes, so if I mess something up, you will know pretty
quickly who did it :D

I will take a look at issue #2 to start :)

As for [3], yeah, if I don't have access to the infrastructure, tough
for me to try to fix anything :D. Some level of public monitoring
would be helpful, at least to alert the rest of the committers to an
infrastructure problem, but drilling into CI execution log output also
reveals the infrastructure problem quickly, so perhaps it is not

It doesn't look like it's breaking things so it's not a high priority (for me) right now.

now that would be me, Vladimir Kotikov and Sergey Shakhnazarov. If you'd like to be included
to the caste, just let me know - but since the slave machines are inside Microsoft infrastructure
it is only us who have the access to both of them and it is only us who can bring the slave
back online if something bad happens.
