For those who are curious how/why the bot has a hard-coded limit about the number of flakes/failures it can handle while still processing patches, see:

(I was wrong, the current limit is 30.)

The gist is that we don't want to run all the tests when a patch makes every test crash (that could take hours) so we stop after some number of failures.  If we ever hit that limit, we can no longer trust the results.

Thus if there are 30 failures/flakes then we can't process patches at all.  We just spin until someone fixes the tree.

The proposal in this bug would help keep the number of flakes down, by making it easy for a human (the current webkit sherriff?) to take action to fix the TestExpectations to recognize the flakes.
