  • Tree Closing Window on Saturday, November 15. bug 1087431 is the tracker.
    • The November 8 window reported last week was postponed to avoid conflicts with decade builds. Final notice is given to the dev groups when everything is "go".
    • An unusually long window -- approx 11-1/2 hours.
    • Most of the work is network related, with interruptions in traffic from time to time.
