Notes

Build 1

Preparing to start Automation

  • Set clobbers for "any master", "mozilla-1.9.2", "any builder"
  • Reserve slaves
  • Landed automation configs
  • Tagged buildbot-configs, buildbotcustom, & tools with FIREFOX_3_6_28_{RELEASE,BUILD1} tags
  • update and reconfigure the master
  • start automation
cd /builds/buildbot/build1/master
source ../bin/activate
PYTHONPATH=. python ../tools/buildbot-helpers/release_sanity.py -u bhearsum -p firefox -V 3.6.28 --branch  mozilla-1.9.2 --build-number 1 -c release-firefox-mozilla-1.9.2.py --bypass-l10n-check --dryrun localhost:9001
  • Failed with:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "../tools/buildbot-helpers/release_sanity.py", line 403, in <module>
    releaseConfig['mozconfigs'],
KeyError: 'mozconfigs'
  • Disabled mozconfig checks and tried again:
PYTHONPATH=. python ../tools/buildbot-helpers/release_sanity.py -u bhearsum -p firefox -V 3.6.28 --branch  mozilla-1.9.2 --build-number 1 -c release-firefox-mozilla-1.9.2.py --bypass-l10n-check --dryrun --bypass-mozconfig-check localhost:9001
  • Started the automation:
PYTHONPATH=. python ../tools/buildbot-helpers/release_sanity.py -u bhearsum -p firefox -V 3.6.28 --branch  mozilla-1.9.2 --build-number 1 -c release-firefox-mozilla-1.9.2.py --bypass-l10n-check  --bypass-mozconfig-check localhost:9001

Move to /pub/mozilla.org/firefox/candidates

I forgot to precreate and symlink this directory, so I had to do the following to move the release to the proper place. I did that with the following, _after_ partial MARs had been uploaded, but before the updates builder had finished (to make sure that no automation was trying to download these files at the same time):

# ffxbld@stage
cd /pub/mozilla.org/firefox/candidates
rsync -av /pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/3.6.28-candidates/ 3.6.28-candidates/
cd /pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly
mv 3.6.28-candidates{,.bak} && ln -s ../candidates/3.6.28-candidates 3.6.28-candidates
# moved instead of deleted just in case i missed something
mv 3.6.28-candidates.bak ~/

Reset reserved slaves

Reset to 0.

Check permissions / AV scan

No virus problems. Permissions check failed with:

find /pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/3.6.28-candidates/build1/ -mindepth 1 -type d ! -perm 755 ! -path '*/contrib*' ! -path '*/partner-repacks*'

Fixed the permissions with:

# ffxbld@stage
find /pub/mozilla.org/firefox/candidates/3.6.28-candidates/build1/ -mindepth 1 -type d ! -perm 755 ! -path '*/contrib*' ! -path '*/partner-repacks*' -exec echo chmod 755 {} \;
chmod 755 /pub/mozilla.org/firefox/candidates/3.6.28-candidates{,/build1}

Filed bug 733726 for investigating this specific issue and bug 733727 after I noticed that other release directories had similar permissions.

Push files to internal mirrors

Added '- firefox/releases/3.6.28' to /pub/mozilla.org/rsyncd-mozilla-releases.exclude on surf and waited 15min for it to get picked up. Then used "force build" to start the push to mirrors builder.

Run backupsnip for beta snippets

# cltbld@aus2-staging
cd /opt/aus2/snippets/staging
~/bin/backupsnip Firefox-3.6.28-build1-beta

Push to beta channel

# cltbld@aus2-staging
cd /opt/aus2/snippets/staging
~/bin/pushsnip Firefox-3.6.28-build1-beta

Major Update Generation

Used "force build" to start builder, no problems.

Update Verify

All green.

Final verification

A couple of not fully synced mirrors, nothing needing action though.

Push to external mirrors

Removed "- firefox/releases/3.6.28" from surf:/pub/mozilla.org/zz/rsyncd-mozilla-releases.exclude. Bumped /pub/mozilla.org/zz/rsyncd-mozilla-current.exclude from 3.6.27 to 3.6.28.

Run backupsnip for release snippets

# cltbld@aus2-staging
cd /opt/aus2/snippets/staging
~/bin/backupsnip Firefox-3.6.28-build1

Push to release channel

# cltbld@aus2-staging
cd /opt/aus2/snippets/staging
~/bin/pushsnip Firefox-3.6.28-build1

And after QA finished testing 3.6.x, the MU:

~/bin/pushsnip Firefox-3.6.28-build1-11.0-build2-MU

Update symlinks

# ffxbld@stage
cd /pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/
rm latest-3.6 && ln -s 3.6.28 latest-3.6

Push XULRunner to Mirrors

# xrbld@stage
rsync -av --exclude=*.txt --exclude=*unsigned* --exclude=*-symbols.zip /pub/mozilla.org/xulrunner/nightly/3.6.28-candidates/build1/ /pub/mozilla.org/xulrunner/releases/3.6.28/

Update XULRunner wiki page
