Since I'm trying to always keep the highest number of green buildbots, I prefer to try to fix the bug myself.
My question is what to do if I'm unable to fix the issue and the author is not available. Keep a broken CI for hours, sometimes for days. Or revert the change to reduce the pressure and get more time to write a *proper* fix?
I propose to revert to get more people at the issue to find the best option, rather than urging to push a quick & dirty fix.
Hopefully, in most cases, the bug is trivial and I consider that the fix doesn't require a review, so I push it directly.
I agree with you that if it's easy to fix, JFDI. If not, revert it to keep the buildbots green and inform the author about the problem. For now that can be to update the issue or PR so the author gets a mention, but later it can be an autonag email.
