You need to add the details to 'status/explicit-failures-markup.xml'.
I don't know if it's documented anywhere, but hopefully you can copy
the format from other libraries. You can use an asterisk at the end of
toolset names to match different variants - but it only works at the
end. There are instructions at the beginning of the file for
validating your changes.
