      Description

      In starting a buildbot job to test DM-840 I ran into a few requests for enhancement:

      • If one enters an email in simple format it rejects it and clears all other fields. Why not just leave everything as is so the user can correct it? I started a "master" build before I realized my branch information had been discarded. I also wish the form would accept simple email addresses; I think it is being overly picky.
      • I'd like to be able to cancel jobs I start. Since you only use one normal login for most purposes it's a bit of a security risk, but enough to really worry about? I hope not. The consequences are pretty minor.
      • The log files show normal completion in red. It's picky, but I think the files would be easier to read if red was reserved for problems.

      The first problems will go away if you are able to authenticate using standard LSST usernames and passwords, which I know is somewhere on the "to do" list. That will be great since it avoids the need to specify an email address at all.

            Marking Won't Fix as buildbot is pretty much frozen at current functionality. I believe I did add the ability to cancel one's own jobs at some point.

            I heartily agree that there is no point trying to improve buildbot at this point.
