Build 1

Starting the automation

  • Created milestones for Fennec and Firefox using the l10n dashboard & downloaded changesets
  • Set reserved_slaves to 8 on bm13
  • Ensured necessary slaves were connected (8 32-bit Linux, 5 64-bit Linux, tons of 64-bit Windows, only 2 32-bit Windows, 4 Mac)
    • Moved 2 additional 32-bit Windows slaves over to make sure repacks went reasonably quickly.
  • Landed config updates, transplanted to the production branch
  • Tagged buildbot-configs, buildbotcustom, tools with {FIREFOX,FENNEC}_16_0b4_{RELEASE,BUILD1}
  • Updated and reconfiged bm13.
  • Ran release sanity:
cd /builds/buildbot/build1/master
source ../bin/activate
PYTHONPATH=. python ../tools/buildbot-helpers/ -u bhearsum \
   -V 16.0b4 --branch mozilla-beta --build-number 1 \
   --release-config \
   --release-config --products firefox,fennec  \
   --dryrun localhost:9001
  • All green, ran without --dryrun to start the automation:
PYTHONPATH=. python ../tools/buildbot-helpers/ -u bhearsum \
   -V 16.0b4 --branch mozilla-beta --build-number 1 \
   --release-config \
   --release-config --products firefox,fennec  \

Sign Android Builds

Ran the following as cltsign@signing1:

cd ~/signing-work/mozharness
hg pull -u && hg up -C
cd ..
python2.6 mozharness/scripts/ --config-file signing/

Because of bug 788883, had to manually send a "signed android builds available" mail.

Fix up failed updates run

The updates builder failed at pushsnip because of a bug in the patch from bug 792201. To finish it up and get things going, did the following

  • Pushed test snippets manually:
# cltbld@linux-ix-slave35
cd /builds/slave/rel-m-beta-updates
rsync -av -e 'ssh -oIdentityFile=~/.ssh/auspush' aus2/
  • Adjusted the state on the database to make Buildbot think Updates finished successfully by running the following query:
update schedulers set state='{"remainingBuilders": [], "upstreamBuilders": ["release-mozilla-beta-updates"], "lastReset": 1348061536.7170119, "lastCheck": 1348061536.7170119}' where name='release-mozilla-beta-updates_done';
update schedulers set state='{"remainingBuilders": [], "upstreamBuilders": ["release-mozilla-beta-push_to_mirrors", "release-mozilla-beta-updates"], "lastReset": 1348061536.7451999, "lastCheck": 1348100766}' where name='release-mozilla-beta-firefox_uptake_check';

Reset reserved slaves

Reset to 0 on bm13.

Retrigger update verify

A bunch of update verify steps failed because of ISE 500 errors coming from stage.m.o. To fix, retriggered them in small batches, which went green. Filed bug 792862 to lower the ||ization of update verify to avoid this in the future.

Publish Fennec

Google Play

Published through the Google Play store per docs.

Push the files

Edited ~ffxbld/ on stage to point at 16.0b4build1 and android/androidv6, ran it.

Push beta snippets

Ran the following as ffxbld@aus3-staging:

cd /opt/aus2/snippets/staging
~/bin/pushsnip Firefox-16.0b4-build1
