it seems that one cannot simply make CircleCI notify the committer that
 broke something:

The summary seems to be:
 * only CircleCI users can sign up for notifications, and they have to
   so actively (and it’s non trivial, judging from Richard’s struggle)
 * Even then, the only options are:
   “Send me a personalized email for every build in my projects.”
   which certainly too much spam and
   “Send me a personalized email every time a build on a branch I've 
   pushed to fails; also once they're fixed.”
   which might be what most people want.
   It is not clear how I can get a mail when someone else broke master…

Well, eventually we will have Jenkins and All Is Well™.
