I would say it'd be worth following up to the original post (with
References: and all that) with a short "fixed" message, because (1)
people often want to know, (2) crosschecking in source-changes is a
pain and sometimes difficult, and (3) if coming along a couple days
later I like to be able to know up front which issues I don't have to
look at.

Also, if the build stays broken in the same way for more than 24
hours, maybe it should mail to gnats...

(how good is it at detecting when one failure changes to another?)
