Many people didn't like the noise by the EWS comments, and we removed the comments as per previous discussion in: https://lists.webkit.org/pipermail/webkit-dev/2019-June/030683.html.
I agree with your point that having some kind of notification might be useful.
I proposed some ideas in https://lists.webkit.org/pipermail/webkit-dev/2019-September/030798.html, but didn't get much feedback. If we can all agree on a solution, I can look into implementing it.

> From now on, in case of build failure, EWS will parse the errors and display them in a separate 'errors' log. You wouldn't have to search through thousands of lines of logs to find the error message.
> For example, in https://ews-build.webkit.org/#/builders/16/builds/6054, in step #7 WebKit failed to compile. Complete logs (stdio) are 38,000+ lines, and the error is not at the end of the logs. Normally, it requires some searching through the logs to find the relevant errors. But now, there is another 'errors' log, which contains just the relevant 11 lines (containing error and few related lines to provide additional context).

My further plan is to make this information more readily available, by adding it to a custom designed page which will open on clicking the status bubble https://webkit.org/b/197522
