[llvm-dev] Buildbot Failures

Hi Joan,

The build bots will always run against the head of master at the point at
which they start their run. Since their may have been multiple commits
since the previous run, potentially multiple people could be the "cause" of
the failure, hence why you and several other people may be in the blame
list. It's worth looking at the logs to confirm that the failure really
doesn't look like anything you caused. Also, some bots can be a bit flaky,
so if for example you are the only person on the blame list, but the
failure doesn't look related, try waiting until the next run to see if it

Finally, feel free to contact the mailing list if you're unsure how to
diagnose whether something is caused by your change or not.
