RelEng: rail

  • No Fennec

Since QA didn't check other platforms, per akeybl request:

  • Update snippets should be provided only for Win8 platform
  • Stub installer bouncer entries should stay pointing to 19.0
  • EU ballot links shouldn't be updated
  • index.html files should stay in place (read don't run post-release)

Bugs hit

bug 845947 - Firefox <=19.0 updates on betatest do not go passed Firefox 19.0

bug 844053 (Separate win8 updates from other windows updates) added exceptions for Win8 platform only for the release and releasetest channels to avoid manual work for beta releases. To work around this limitation I renamed betatest to releasetest so the snippets point ot FTP.

cd /opt/aus2/snippets/staging
rsync -a ../pushed/Firefox-19.0.1-build1-test.win8/ Firefox-19.0.1-build1-test.win8-releasetest/
cd Firefox-19.0.1-build1-test.win8-releasetest
find . -name releasetest -type d -exec rm -rf {} \;
for d in `find . -name betatest -type d`; do mv $d ${d/beta/release}; done
~/bin/pushsnip Firefox-19.0.1-build1-test.win8-releasetest
rsync -a ../pushed/Firefox-19.0.1-build1-test.win8/ Firefox-19.0.1-build1-test.win8-recover

And to restore the previous state where the releasetest channel points to bouncer I pushed the old snippets once r-d sent a push-to-mirrors go.
