What you'd need is some way to add information to the build database, not
the logs (such as number of bug filed, so Dan can immediately see if a
particular package bug has been fixed by an upload so it makes sense to
try that package again).
Both the logs and the database are kept on a project machine, meaning
you'd need to become a developer to get access (unless there are
Indirect manipulation of the database is possible via mail interface on
the autobuilder. I believe the mail engine currently refuses to further
add information to packages in state failed (expecting them to be in state
building) but I've not tried recently... Nope, doesn't work. That might be
a thing to try - change check_state(Building) to check_state(Building,
Failed) for fail replies.
