[development] Failed to install HEAD

Please see http://drupal.org/node/371309  "Failed to install HEAD"  
message makes the bot seem like a failure

The bot failure message doesn't explain _why_ it failed. We need to  
change the error message to help people out. This same message  
confused the hell out of me until someone told me it meant the _Drupal  
installer_ was broke after the patch was applied.
