GitHub Tip: Check Build Status for Commits

For anyone who isn’t aware: From the Commits area of GitHub, you can quickly check the build status of your changes: <>

In the line showing the author and commit date/time, there should be an icon at the end of that. And it may show as a red dot (if any have failed), a green checkmark (all successful), or a yellow dot (builds in-progress).

Click on that icon, and it will display a list of the various buildbot watchers. You can then drill down into those, and quickly find the detail you need.

This saves a lot of time, versus manually checking the build status page for a given port. Particularly when a change involves multiple subports.
