Description

AlertManager (https://github.com/jmaher/alert_manager/), provides a great view on alerts and makes it easier to turn alerts into actionable bugs by consolidating information.

One thing we do is take a link to graph server and put a couple of branches for the same test/platform so we can quickly determine which branch was the first to exhibit the regression.

This is a nice thing, but after finding the original branch, we care more about answering "what platforms are affected by this change".  In many cases we don't have all the alerts available to answer this question, so looking a the graphs can help this out.

Here is an example graph link:
http://graphs.mozilla.org/graph.html#tests=[[309, 131, 31], [309, 132, 31]]&datatype=geo&sel=1421891529000,1422064329000

this would be an example of the same link edited as the bug suggests:
http://graphs.mozilla.org/graph.html#tests=[[309,132,31],[309,131,31]]&datatype=geo&displayrange=30

We could reuse the code we have in parse_news.py:
https://github.com/jmaher/alert_manager/blob/master/parse_news.py#L260

and use the platform values from:
http://hg.mozilla.org/build/talos/file/tip/talos/compare.py#l64

We would like to ensure that we have:
Linux
Linux64
OSX10.8
WinXP
Win7
Win8


This should be an additional link on the alert row, lets call it 'platformurl' (open to a better name).  This will go nearby graphurl and tbplurl.
