A newer version of buildbot (0.8) include the parameter extraHeaders
[2], not included on the version that we are using. Anyway, I guess

"buildMessage" on the notifier [3]. I will confirm that once I have
time to do that.

I took a brief loot to buildbot documentation [1], and you have the

mode - one of:

    * 'failing': only send mail about builds which fail
    * 'problem': only send mail about a build which failed when the previous build passed

I guess that we are looking for 'problem', so this shouldn't be

And about configuration, as you can also configure if the build log is
included or not, should we include the log on the mail (so bigger
