I'd like to start with more active broadcast notification of build breaks and see if we think we need more changes from there. I prefer to try technology-based approaches before process-based approaches. Right now broken trees linger because you have to go out of your way to notice, meaning the information diffuses slowly.

Maybe some won't want the spam but I bet a lot of people would like to find out about every build break. If it's at all possible, it would be great to email all of the patch author, the reviewer and the committer (if different from the patch author).
