Notifications, but with the option to compose the payload

We currently don’t use the notify pipeline feature because we want to customise the message template and there doesn’t seem to be a way to do that.

For example

  • to target the slack notifications for a “build broken” we want to include the slack username of the last person to commit, so that they get an @-mention.
  • we don’t use the email, basecamp options.
  • we want to include contextual information about the failure into the failure, like (say) the last few log lines of the command-step, so it’s more tempting for a person to drive-by fix.

Would it be possible to augment the notify feature with “run this binary to produce a document containing a message template”?
