Hi Everyone,

I am very happy to announce that I have added the ability to retry the patches in EWS :)

From now on, for any patch, whenever any of the EWS status-bubble is red, you will see another button named 'Retry failed builds' next to the status-bubbles. Clicking on 'Retry failed builds' button would cause all the failed EWS builds for that patch to be retried. Please click on this button only when needed, as unnecessary retries might put load on the system and others patches might have to wait longer.

As always, please feel free to let me know if you notice any issue or have any feedback.

Maybe a good place to add the 'retry' button would be the status-bubble's tool-tip (visible only if the bubble is red) https://webkit.org/b/196599 <https://webkit.org/b/196599>This would be amazing. (My 2c: I'd vote for the button being visible without tooltip.)
