Notes About Releasing

Please update the Notes Template and the Release:Primer for future releases (bug fixes, changes to automation) as needed

Bugs hit

  • 20 minutes not long enough for 6 concurrent repack jobs to clone - in fact only three tried to clone, the others updated and got 4 changesets. So hg.m.o slowness ?
  • bug 780800 - mozharness shouldn't checkout a working copy of files in hg-shared directories
