On #30785, @bradfitz helpfully noticed that the baseline I was testing against was quite old.

It would have been even more helpful if the bot would have told me that instead of requiring human intervention. 馃檪

The TryBot result for my test said:

2 of 2 TryBots failed:
Failed on linux-amd64-androidemu:
Failed on android-amd64-emu:

Consult to see whether they are new failures.

Perhaps it also could have said something like:

WARNING: Base commit xxxxxx (merged Feb. 22, 2019) is older than 7 days.
Results might not reflect current master.

Also see: #19664 (x/build: make trybots refuse to test a commit that's too old), only difference is that you're asking for a warning and not an hard refusal. May be worth to just move the discussion there and decide if a warning of a refusal is better.

It looks like the original commit stalled because they couldn't reach a consensus on what the right limit should be. A number of days, a number of commits, some combination of both?

Perhaps we can start with a warning and see if it's too agressive or conservative. And if we're happy with it, consider replacing the warning with an error.

It stalled on time to implement it more than deciding anything.
