Sheriffing & Trees

[edmorley away until 6th June due to the UK public holiday]

  • [edmorley] Infra/tree closure issues coordinated:
    • Nightlies busted during uploadsymbols (bug 759084).
    • FTP log access problems from bug 732025 landing.
    • Timeout during 'uploading for signing' on OS X 10.7 builds (bug 760566).
  • [edmorley] Reducing infra load caused by profiling branch (it doubles m-c load):
    • Landed patch to disable talos (bug 759080).
    • Filed bugs to disable unused Android Debug builds (bug 759073) & stop building pushes that are DONTBUILD (bug 758965).
  • [edmorley] Requested list of active mercurial hooks for 60 hg.m.o repos (bug 758994), so trees with closure hook could be added to treestatus.m.o & missing hooks identified (over half of the trees are missing at least one hook). Got missing single_head_per_branch hook added to 20 repos (bug 759450). Shyam Mani & Ben Kero of developer services have been extremely helpful/responsive A+++++ would file again :-)

  • [edmorley] Notifying/adding active sheriffs to (bug 758886).
  • [edmorley] Added site footer links to the source on Github.
  • [edmorley] 'Restore previous state' feature not working.
  • [edmorley] Need manage tree functionality (currently have to hand-craft POST fields to delete trees).
  • [edmorley] Added missing 'reason' parameter for deleting a tree, to the API docs.
  • [edmorley] Populated with active trees & status messages (bug 758882).


  • [edmorley] Fixed:
    • bug 758680, remove usetinderbox=1 support.
    • bug 656732, remove the concept of the last job of each type.
    • bug 757036, make TBPL's Vagrantfile auto-detect platform and turn off NFS on Windows.
    • bug 759293, remove the old version of leak-analyser.
    • bug 758962, update TBPL's copy of jQuery & jQuery UI.
    • bug 759313, remove references to cache/summaries directories & correct setup docs, now that we only use the DB.
    • bug 758954, remove globalStorage fallback support.
  • [edmorley] Discussions & decision for DB data expiration strategy (bug 703967).
  • [edmorley] Started debugging bug 759189, tree admin panel doesn't work when using baseURL to run TBPL locally.
  • [edmorley] Un-hid non-existent builders to make manual syncing of the hidden list easier & to reduce size of getHiddenBuilders.php response on every page load. Manually synced hidden builders lists across tbpl.m.o, tbpl-dev & my local TBPL testing instance, for more reliable comparison of prod with dev.
  • [edmorley] Filed bugs for more TBPL papercuts/cleanup (bug 758953, bug 758957, bug 759319).

War on Orange

      • IT Meeting

Update this page with hosts

  • Monday Meeting
    • Highlights should mention what affected goals
    • The goals should be mentioned at the top of the page
    • And the emcee will go through them
    • Makes the emcee will go through the goals, not the entire status
  • The talk last week
    • Guy mentioned status was next to useless
    • The weekly meeting should be more of a strategy session
    • Are we too big to make this a strategy meeting?
      • Important thing is that people in the meeting be affected by the topics in the group
      • There are different levels of strategy too. And so we can attack it that.
  • Would it be worth having one group periodically go deep?
    • It would be interesting to hear what they had to say because then it would be interesting to hear about what they are doing and give you a means to follow along with their status.
    • Sort of like what they do in the main status meeting - people to a quick presentation/discussion in the meeting.
    • It should be no obligation to prepare anything, just expand on what you're working on.
    • We can rotate this among the teams working on things.
  • Next week
    • Jgriffin will be EMcee
    • If a team wants to discuss their work, let him know.
