Most (I thought all) of the bots already do the fixed failed thing.
There's something to be said for a consistent format though, and it'd be
nice if more of the bots mentioned the revision (green-dragon does, but
llvmbb and bb-chapuni don't).

The other thing that would help is limiting the number of names that can
show up on a blamelist. If there are a hundred names on the blamelist
the message is way too long and the notifications don't help much. The
green-dragon bot just says "[n] people on blamelist" instead in these

I don't think so - if you fixed it intentionally you usually know it,
and if not it's just another beeping window to ignore.
