I'd vote for an email to the dev list, or both. Often enough, one of us
will try building it, find the issue, and report it here anyway. Also,
I've seen invalid email addresses in commit logs (slegrand.invalid.none, or
something to that extent) -- so we can't count on valid email addresses, I
would think. (And maybe someone besides the architect of the break can fix
it quickly, as well.)

Nothing wrong with a good public shaming, we've all broken Amber before,
and we'll do it again :).
