[webkit-dev] Using commit-queue doesn't mean you can use build failures

Hi all,

Using commit-queue doesn't pardon a committer from causing build failures.

Notice that the commit queue only builds & runs tests on Chromium Linux
port. Thus, any build failure that doesn't manifest itself on Chromium
Linux port — namely any JSC-specific or Windows/Mac specific build
failures — won't be caught.

The current policy specifically says the committer is responsible for
making sure his or her patch builds & passes tests:

So please make sure your patch at least builds if you're landing a patch
via commit queue.
