It would e great to see (and filter) RETRY jobs based on their subject. Right now the subject contains "... step failed on ..." what a bit misleading and caused us to retrigger and they cancel some jobs in the past.
This would be great. IIRC, this is a limitation of the MailNotifier we use. Probably not difficult to fix.

I think we can work around this limitation.

We already use buildbot status results defined in http://hg.mozilla.org/build/buildbot/file/111a1230a89d/master/buildbot/status/builder.py#l26 to set real status of "failures" http://hg.mozilla.org/build/buildbotcustom/file/24c8f59c88e5/process/release.py#l146 and "eval" that in in http://hg.mozilla.org/build/buildbot-configs/file/3a9613d3680d/mozilla/release_templates/default_failed#l4.

We could use job_status_repr in http://hg.mozilla.org/build/buildbotcustom/file/24c8f59c88e5/process/release.py#l180 and have different templates for different results.
