Yes, please add this. Making this user specified is a good move, as on
one of my servers I have several virtual servers so want to specify a
particular servername.

That's what I thought, but the field is empty.

Appreciated, but if you commint a change with an error, then the
continuous build doesn't send any notification if you've configured
"Email me when my checkins are breaking the dashboard".

"Email me when any builds are breaking the dashboard" seems to work OK.

For "Email me when checkins are breaking nightly dashboard" we've seen a
nightly build where two builds failed (debug & release) but we only saw
one error email.

Looking at the code this seems to only cope with viewcvs.
