tracking bug: bug 767943
buildbot master: 13

Build 1

  • reserved slaves
   [cltbld@buildbot-master13 master]$ cat reserved_slaves
   [cltbld@buildbot-master13 master]$ echo 8 >reserved_slaves
   [cltbld@buildbot-master13 master]$ cat reserved_slaves
  • clobbered m-b
  • generated l10n changesets (some confusion on my part, resolved & docs updated)
  • no need to lock slaves, still locked
    • mw32-ix-slave02 needed rebooting to connect (aki|buildduty did)
  • double landed config changes (see bug 767943)
  • tagged on bm13 & started both fennec & firefox (forgot to save output)
    • release sanity passed fine, so all parameters supplied match commit checkin.
    • Did set myself as user, as shown by change source in buildbot.
  • signed FN builds (updated docs on when it's okay to do this step)
    • used the documented command for FN (after the fact copy/paste):
 cd ~/signing-work/mozharness
 hg pull -u && hg up -C
 python2.6 ~/signing-work/mozharness/scripts/ --config-file signing/ --platform android
  • reset slaves (shell history):
 995  cd /builds/buildbot/build1/master/
 996  cat reserved_slaves 
 997  >reserved_slaves
 998  cat reserved_slaves
  • pushed fennec snips
    • confusion on version # due to this window of interwoven GA & beta releases using same version. Script docs updated.

  • published fennec on google play
   # download both multi apks. These have the same name so save them to separate directories.
   #    (e.g. android/multi/
   curl -O
   # visit
   # choose "Firefox Beta" 
   # select the "APK Files" tab and choose "Upload APK"
   #    choose the android multi apk that you downloaded and hit "upload"
   #    when it finishes uploading, verify VersionCode is the build date (almost anyway, the market reports an hour later than our buildID)
   #    hit "Save" 
   # activate new android apk (You should see an Error message since both apk's are active)
   # deactivate old android apk (You should not see the Error message anymore). 
   # hit "Save"
