Until we're about to ship this page will serve as a spot to put down a rough checklist of what needs to be done to ship.

Generate major update

Note: major updates from 3.0.x -> 3.1.x are generated by buildbot automation. These instructions have been edited making that assumption.

# ssh cltbld@momo-build-adm-01
$> cd /home/cltbld/patcher/mozilla/tools/patcher
# Edit the appropriate patcher-config/*.cfg file.
# - Change the http:// paths between <current-update>.
# - Paste in the <release 3.1> tag (adjust for the version you are releasing)
#   Note: copy from one of the other files and replace  <x.y.z> tag with <release> tag
# - Edit the "from=" and "to=" values as needed.
$> vim moz19-thunderbird-branch-major-update-patcher2.cfg

Download relevant product binaries

# TB 2.x
$> ./ --download --app=thunderbird --config=../patcher-configs/moz19-thunderbird-branch-major-update-patcher2.cfg

Create patcher symlinks

# (so patcher sees MARs that it thinks are partials)
$> cd temp/thunderbird
$> ln -s 3.1.7
$> cd ../..

# Create partial patches and snippets
$> ./ --create-patches --app=thunderbird --config=../patcher-configs/moz19-thunderbird-branch-major-update-patcher2.cfg

Quick verify

$ cd temp/thunderbird/
$ ~/bin/patch-quick-verify

Create archive

$> cd temp/thunderbird
$> cd # symlink made earlier
$> mv aus2 20100716-Thunderbird-
$> mv aus2.test 20100716-Thunderbird-
$> tar cvzf 20100716-Thunderbird- 20100716-Thunderbird-
$> tar cvzf 20100716-Thunderbird- 20100716-Thunderbird-

Mac Symlink Workaround

# NOTE: Not required for 2.x
# create Mac symlinks (to handle deprecation of PowerPC architecture)
$> ssh tbirdbld@momo-build-adm-01
$> cd /opt/aus/snippets/staging
$> for d in `find 20101207-Thunderbird-3.1.7* -name Darwin_Universal-gcc3 | cut -d/ -f 1-3`; do pushd $d; ln -s Darwin_Universal-gcc3 Darwin_x86-gcc3-u-ppc-i386; popd; done
$> exit
# [re-]push only the required updates
# NOTE: only has to be done if symlinks didn't exist in the snippet staging area
$> ssh cltbld@momo-build-adm-01
$> cd /opt/aus/snippets/staging
$> pushsnip 20100101-Thunderbird-3.1.7-test
