Release_Management/Merge_Days

What's missing here

This is a document in process, and will also be replaced by automation at some point. In the meantime it outlines the manual steps required on a 'Merge Day' when Mozilla-Aurora becomes Mozilla-Beta and Mozilla-Central becomes Mozilla-Aurora.

ATM there is nothing in here about:

  • synching all the L10N repos (current doc is here for repos: L10n:Migration, and dashboard process is coming)
    • There have been issues with missing l10n locales on first beta1 builds. In m-b --> m-r migration, RelEng run l10n-sync script to uplift beta locales to release, which ensures that all locales have content in release repo and are migrated correctly. However, this script currently doesn't get used for m-a --> m-b merge day (need to check with Axel on his process here).
  • Thunderbird/SeaMonkey merging, that doc is at Thunderbird/Release_Driving/Rapid_Release_Activities/Merge_Repositories

Mozilla-Beta -> Mozilla-Release Merge

  • Make sure that there isn't an l10n locales bug that needs to filed like: bug 826825

Close the Beta Tree

  • Use https://treestatus.mozilla.org/ to close mozilla-beta. No need to reopen till the next merge from Aurora->Beta (or a beta re-spin is necessary)
    • Please use the "Remember previous state" option, so you can easily restore the previous status messages when you are finished (there will be a restore button at the bottom of the page).
    • In order to change tree statuses, your browserID email needs to be added with sheriff permissions (ping edmorley/philor/catlee or ask in #developers).

Sync mozilla-beta to mozilla-release

Mercurial repositories used for final releases should be synced from mozilla-beta.

Tip of default on mozilla-release should be tagged and closed. mozilla-beta should be tagged and pulled. It creates new tip of default on mozilla-release. See Aurora specific sync mechanics for the details.

L10N repositories uses noop (dummy) merge if needed to simplify localizers life.


To handle this process use the following scripts.

Sync mozilla-beta to mozilla-release

Script available here (beta2release.sh) do not use as it doesn't update confvars.sh

Beta to Release Merge day helper Script

(Beta2Release) Merge day helper script : https://gist.github.com/bbajaj/7045666 ALWAYS GET A FRESH COPY IN CASE THERE HAVE BEEN UPDATES!!!

Clobber mozilla-release builders

Go to https://secure.pub.build.mozilla.org/clobberer/?branch=mozilla-release and clobber the mozilla-release builders

Clone, Tag, update [Taken care by the helper script beta2release.py]

Running beta2release.py

  • If running for the first time save this the script in the directory where you typically do the beta to release merge.

For eg : I typically have the script saved as /Users/bbajaj/Mozilla/beta2release/beta2release.py

  • Script will take-care of tagging, return here when ready to push mozilla-beta

hg -R mozilla-beta push ssh://hg.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla-beta

Edit desktop config

# edit mozilla-release/browser/locales/shipped-locales file if you need to remove some beta locales (eg mn, sw)
# script takes care of config changes

Edit mobile mozconfigs

Note: use 'official' for release mozconfigs, not 'release'

# script takes care of config changes

Commit Changes

# commit the changes
#script takes care of the commits
# push back
# hg -R mozilla-release push -f ssh://hg.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla-release

Now go watch results

https://tbpl.mozilla.org/?tree=Mozilla-Release

L10N sync

  • Note you need permission to be able to run this script successfully.File a server ops bug similar to bug 869654

Script available here (beta2release_l10n.sh)

Note for August 24th beta->release uplift, you'll want to incorporate Axel's merge script to deal with when release locale repos don't have anything committed to them yet.

Also note the merge part of this script does not work properly period, and doesn't push to repo

Close the Trees

DO NOT CLOSE mozilla-central FOR MERGING

  • Use https://treestatus.mozilla.org/ to close the trees.
  • Please use the "Remember previous state" option, so you can easily restore the previous status messages when you are finished (there will be a restore button at the bottom of the page).
  • In order to change tree statuses, your browserID email needs to be added with sheriff permissions (ping edmorley/philor/catlee or ask in #developers).

Get Bhavana's Helper Script (do this every merge day)

# Make sure you get a fresh copy in case there have been updates since last merge
git clone https://gist.github.com/bbajaj/6577763 


  • Open two terminal windows, be in the top dir of your cloned repos in both
  • In one of them run the helper script (in the other you can run the needed manual steps: verifying,pushing, etc):
python merge_help_v1.py
# follow instructions in script combined with wiki commands

mozilla-central tag/bump from 89 to 88

Script should do Tagging/Version bumps

  • Send note to dev-planning and #developers announcing that the merge is about to start
  • Script will do tagging of mozilla_central -> FIREFOX_AURORA_26_BASE
  • Script will do version bumps

Push Your Changes

# check the diffs to ensure nothing additional has been changed
hg push
  • Announce to dev-planning and #developers that the m-c bump is completed

Change Template Version Numbers

Now that everything has been bumped edit the following so our Channel Notes and other wiki pages have the correct info and queries now (increment by 1) All versions are now automatically bumped. Information on the calculation follows the list of templates.

  1. REDIRECT Template:Version/Gecko/release/current

Calculating the current Firefox release # and next release date

The expression reads
floor(Firefox 23 + ((current time - Firefox 23 release date) / 6 weeks))
. This expression counts the number of full 6 week increments since Firefox 23 and adds the total to 23 to give the current release number. Similarly, we can calculate the next release date with
{{#time: Y-m-d | @{{#expr: (3628800 - (({{#time: U | now}} - {{#time: U | 6 Aug 2013}}) mod 3628800)) + {{#time: U | now}}}}}}
. In this case we calculate the time since the Firefox 23 release, take the remainder from dividing by 6 weeks, and subtract that from the current time. This results in the number of days until the next release. Add that to the current time to produce the next release date.
