bsmedberg: please note new build system requirements and upgrade your Windows build trees to MozillaBuild ASAP.


  • Taking over tinderbox support via tickets
    • More details on the new process from build
    • Still working with build to take over Nagios build monitors
  • Community machine up and running in .nl
    • See Seth for access/resources
  • Supporting build/qa last week and this week
    • 6 new machines coming online this week for build, 1 already installed
    • VMWare upgrades are coming - expect them in the next few weeks
  • Deploying remaining static sites and cvs-mirror to .nl this week
  • Looking at how to add dynamic applications to .nl load balancing pool
  • Time zone, PHP, kernel and phone system upgrades/patches are being done as possible - look for downtime
  • Working through netscaler issues - currently are stable, but continuing to work with netscaler engineering
  • lxr -> mxr migration - please test at: mxr.mozilla.org -- currently re-syncing data, ETA 6 to 8 hours, then should be up-to-date from now on.


  • IT is taking over first-level support of Tinderbox this week; details will be posted in the newsgroups and planet this afternoon, but the most important change is we're tracking outages and Tinderbox problems via bugs; this is a departure from handling things on IRC.
  • The new daylight saving time occurs next week; we're starting to look at what'll be affected this week.
  • We will be turning off the build Macs in the office at the end of April; materially, this means binus, boxset, hilo, and pawn. We have supported hardware in the colo to move these builds to; we can also ship these Macs to those doing builds for community projects if they want to continue using them as build machines.
  • More details will be coming in the following weeks, but we're working on getting dedicated, community accessible build resources in the community network; we've been working with IT and SethB to make sure we have the proper environments for these projects. This is especially relevant given the Tinderbox support switchover above.
