Tracking bug: bug 789530

Release engineer: aki

Buildbot master: buildbot-master34

Build 1

  • No l10n changesets for a chemspill
  • reserved slaves
[cltbld@buildbot-master34 ~]$ echo "8" > /builds/buildbot/build1/master/reserved_slaves 
[cltbld@buildbot-master34 ~]$ cat /builds/buildbot/build1/master/reserved_slaves
  • locked w64-ix-slave{68..72}, mw32-ix-slave{03,04} to bm34, rebooted the 3 idle ones.
  • release sanity: set l10n dashboard version to 15 since we didn't create a new milestone for 15.0.1.
PYTHONPATH=. python ../tools/buildbot-helpers/ -u aki \
    -V 15.0.1 --branch comm-release --build-number 1 \
    --release-config \
    --l10n-dashboard-version 15 \
    --products thunderbird --dryrun localhost:9001

Once I got the l10n dashboard right, there were no errors. Re-ran without --dryrun.
