I think they are supposed to, but I've never gotten one, not even when
my gentoo buildbots suffered a hardware failure.  A month or so later
Antoine emailed me, and I told him to remove them at least for now,
since I don't currently have replacement hardware.  (I'm hoping to fix
that, but I have to find the time...)

That said, there has never as far as I know been an active hook to email
the maintainer when the buildbot is red.  I don't know if buildbot
supports that or not, so that would be the first thing to check.
