Bugs Hit

  • bug 804712 - release sanity failure running sendchange on a master with missing symlink to release_templates
  • bug 804901 - release builds shouldn't fail when clobberer is not available


Build 1

Ship the l10n milestone

Created and shipped the Fennec and Firefox l10n milestones on the l10n dashboard.

Land config updates

  • Landed configuration updates
  • Tagged buildbot-configs, buildbotcustom, and tools with {FIREFOX,FENNEC}_17_0b3_{RELEASE,BUILD1}
  • Reconfiged build and scheduler masters

Run release sanity and start automation

On buildbot-master36:

cd /builds/buildbot/build_scheduler/master
source ../bin/activate
PYTHONPATH=. python ../tools/buildbot-helpers/ -u rail \
    -V 17.0b3 --branch mozilla-beta --build-number 1 \
    --release-config \
    --release-config --products firefox,fennec  \
    --dryrun localhost:9301
  • Ran the same command without --dryrun
  • sendchange returned non zero exit code even though the automation had been started. It turned out that bm36 had no symlinks to release_templates directory. Filed bug 804712. symlinked the directory to the master directory.

Push to mirrors

  • Failed because the clobberer was unreachable, filed bug 804901
  • Reran the builders
