Landing Procedure

  • sec-high and sec-critical patches have automatic approval to land if the fix has landed on all affected Firefox branches. All others must have blocking-b2g:2.1S+ to land.
  • Follow normal landing practices for Trunk/Master unless the bug only affects the v2.1S branch.
  • Add a=2.1S+ to the end of the commit message and uplift to:
    • v2.1s/[1] (setting status-b2g-v2.1S:fixed)
  • Bugs that also affect v2.2 (status-b2g-v2.2:affected) will be handled on a case-by-case basis upon approval from release manager for uplift. Due to the specialized nature of this branch, 2.1S+ blocking status does not grant automatic approval to uplift to v2.2. Patches must go through the regular approval process as detailed below for v2.2 consideration.
