Build 1

build 1 cancelled before QA

Set reserved slaves

  • Reserved slaves
[cltbld@buildbot-master12 ~]$ echo "8" > /builds/buildbot/build1/master/reserved_slaves #rail
[cltbld@buildbot-master12 master]$ pwd
/builds/buildbot/build1/master
[cltbld@buildbot-master12 master]$ cat reserved_slaves
8

Preparing to start Automation

detailed instructions

  • Set clobbers for the appropriate masters. Doing this 24-48 hours in advance should speedup the build.
  • For build1 only, create symlinks:
  • Created candidates directory:
 # ffxbld@stage, 
 version=13.0.2
 cd /pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/
 mkdir ../candidates/$version-candidates
 ln -s ../candidates/$version-candidates $version-candidates
  • Land automation configs
  • Tag buildbot-configs, buildbotcustom, & tools with build & release tags.
  • update and reconfigure the master
cd /builds/buildbot/build1
source bin/activate
make update && make checkconfig && make reconfig
cd master
PYTHONPATH=. python ../tools/buildbot-helpers/release_sanity.py -u hwine  \
    -V 13.0.2 --branch mozilla-release --build-number 1 \
    --release-config release-firefox-mozilla-release.py --products firefox  \
    --l10n-dashboard-version=13 \
    --dryrun localhost:9001
  • As expected, above complained about missing mn & sw locales, so final run included -l switch to skip checks
  • start automation ← monitor progress on buildbot (e.g. release)

They want to know approximately what time push to external mirrors will occur. Ideally this is a 24hr notice to them, with the estimated time.
