You may have noticed that this has merged, along with a further change
that shows the latest results in a table format.  (You may need to
force-reload in your browser to see the change.)

The table only includes CI systems that leave their results in the same
format that we use for Jenkins; we will update the recommendations for
third party CI systems to encourage the use of that format.

This is all still fairly brittle, based mostly on javascript-powered
screen scraping.  However, I'm hoping we can get something like it in a
Gerrit plugin for a more long-term solution to the problem.

Thanks again to Radoslav Gerganov for writing the original change.
