So a loose collection of questions might be:
Do you know the different ways of being notified (email, RSS, twitter)?

I only knew about email.

Do you use other channels than email?


Do you know the configuration interface ?


Do you use it? means: did you ever tweak params there?

Yep (infrequently)

Is it intuitive to use?


Did you ever use the expert mode?

Le what?

Is the expert mode intuitive to use?


Are you missing features?

Yep. A link from build.o.o to hermes, or better integration with the web-ui.
Especially for the appliance... I'm not sure how to get notifications
working on the appliance.

And an "edge" notification mode. Ie: when a build status changes
instead when it fails. Because for packages that fail and build
against factory, it ends up spamming quite considerably on each
factory-induced failed rebuild.

Is it working as you expected? (Except of things already known as bugs.)

Yep. A-ok.

Other thoughts?

For the edge thing, I just checked the expert interface.
Cool, but I don't see anything that applies. Frequency limits aren't
exactly it, and though the "reason" filter get close, it's still not

My initial impression of the expert interface: intuitive enough, for experts.
