L10n revisions according to opt-ins as listed in l10n-changesets (taken from the sign-off tool)


  • Build 1 is based on the same l10n and comm-central revisions as 2.0.12, due to it being a chemspill prep, in anticipation of Firefox doing a chemspill release.


  • Made sure all build machines have clean release directories
  • Updated l10n-changesets and
  • Updated and reconfigured buildmaster
  • Kicked off with the following command:
buildbot sendchange --username=Callek --master=localhost:9010 --branch=releases/comm-1.9.1 -c "SeaMonkey 2.0.13build1" doit
  • Apparantly I never actually pushed the buildbot-custom config change, which means I re-built 2.0.12 build1, moving now to 2.0.13 again re-sent the sendchange
buildbot sendchange --username=Callek --master=localhost:9010 --branch=releases/comm-1.9.1 -c "SeaMonkey 2.0.13build1" doit
  • That meant that due to the ovewriting of it all, I had to sync in the 2.0.12 builds back into the candidates dir. Manually generate *_info.txt and lost the crash symbols (which aren't really used directly).
