Slack notifications

It would be really neat if the slack notifications used the new slack blocks API to overcome some of the width requirements enforced by the old slack webhooks api. I assume any code that generates those messages is part of the proprietary product but in the off chance I’m wrong I’d be happy to help tackle it!

Hey there @libsysguy — welcome to the Buildkite forum :wave:

That’s an awesome suggestion, the new block kit stuff is pretty neat! You’re correct that the notification code is in the closed-source bit of Buildkite, so I can’t make an promises about when we’ll get to look into it, but I’ll definitely be scoping it out!
