Mozilla tinderbox Tool Now Uploading Generated Builds to FTP

Wednesday November 12th, 2003

cmg42 wrote in to tell us that tinderbox is now pushing new builds up to ftp.mozilla.org. The tinderbox machines continuously compile the latest code, run some automated tests and then report the results (the tinderbox project page has more information). Rather than just throwing the generated builds away, tinderbox can now upload them to the mozilla.org FTP site.

According to a weblog posting by Asa Dotzler, the plan is to have nightly builds regularly generated by tinderbox. Eventually, all tinderbox builds will be made available for download, allowing hardcore users to update their copies of Mozilla as often as once an hour.

So far, it appears that only one tinderbox-generated build has been created, a Mozilla Application Suite Windows installer binary (the first since Tuesday 28th October). At the time of writing, this build can be accessed by using the 'D' link in the 'WINNT 5.0 creature Clbr' column on the SeaMonkey tinderbox page, or by going directly to ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mozilla/nightly/2003-11-12-12.

Correction: Thanks to Asa Dotzler for informing us that daily tinderbox-generated builds are actually being uploaded to ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mozilla/tinderbox-builds and not the regular nightly directories at this point.

Update: The tinderbox builds are now being uploaded to the regular nightly directories.

Actually, there are windows and linux builds both being made and their boxes are set to kick out just a single build per day right now and they're not both putting builds in the nightly directories just yet. It's being worked on :-)

Too bad the windows builds are not talkback enabled. :-(

Are the Linux builds? Talkback hasn't been working in recent days anyway. Not much point in having it in the builds if the servers aren't there to listen...

Hopefully someone from Mozilla will be able to tell us what's happening with Talkback soon.

AFAIK Talkback is a closed-source thing.

I'd like to be able to check a box next to a bugzilla patch, and have automated builds done for it.

This would 1. Show most build bustage before it gets checked in 2. Allow someone else besides an engineer to easily test the patch

This is *truly* hardcore. But not as hardcore as uploading the generated builds to Debian unstable =)
