Notes

Build 1

Using RELEASE_AUTOMATION_M11, same as for recent releases

Slave cleanup

  • production-prometheus-vm
    • need ~10GB for tag, source, update generation and linux verify, stage; already had 18GB free
  • production-crazyhorse
      • 22GB free on /builds
      • update tinderbox to automation tag
        • cd /builds/tinderbox/mozilla/tools/tinderbox; cvs up -CPd -r RELEASE_AUTOMATION_M11
  • bm-xserve05
      • need ~20GB for mac builds, l10n_verify, mac update verify (but 16GB already allocated for builds); 15G free already
      • update tinderbox to automation tag
        • cd /builds/tinderbox/mozilla/tools/tinderbox; cvs up -CPd -r RELEASE_AUTOMATION_M11
  • production-patrocles
      • 51GB free
      • update tinderbox to automation tag
        • cd /cygdrive/e/builds/tinderbox/mozilla/tools/tinderbox; cvs up -CPd -r RELEASE_AUTOMATION_M11
  • Land changes and retag tb-moz18-bootstrap.cfg
      • cvs tag -d RELEASE_AUTOMATION_M11 tb-moz18-bootstrap.cfg # to delete the tag on the old version
      • cvs tag RELEASE_AUTOMATION_M11 tb-moz18-bootstrap.cfg # to tag the new version

Setup master before starting:

  • update mozilla/tools/buildbot-configs/automation/production/tb-master.cfg for most recent milestone of bootstrap (no change this release)
  • as buildmaster@production-1.8-master, cd /builds/buildbot/Thunderbird-Automation/buildbot-configs. Check for local diff, revert any changes from last release, dry run a cvs up, then cvs up (only had to revert previous changes, nothing to pull in for this release)
  • master.cfg is "Locally Modified" to contain passwords; identical to repository version otherwise.
  • Ran 'buildbot reconfig /home/buildmaster/Thunderbird-Automation'
  • Buildbot waterfall is here (MPT-VPN); this is a separate instance from the Firefox master, with production-prometheus-vm and bm-xserve05 running a slave for each master
  • Stop nightly builds on bm-xserve05 (~cltbld $ buildbot stop macosx-1.8-slave2/) and annotate Mozilla1.8 tree to explain its absence

Start automation run:

buildbot sendchange --username=nthomas --master=localhost:9990 -m"Thunderbird 2.0.0.19 build 1" release

Update Verify

Automated, both mac and linux had errors due to AUS not returning updates for the couple of locales. Ran both again after moving /builds/release/logs/updates_verify.log to updates_verify.log.1 (mac aliases mv to cp!), both were green.

Push updates to beta channel

$ sudo su - cltbld

$ cd /opt/aus2/snippets/staging
$ time ~/bin/backupsnip 20081210-Thunderbird-2.0.0.19-beta
real    28m9.114s
user    0m26.064s
sys     0m26.851s

Waited for formal "go" to beta.

$ sudo su - cltbld
$ cd /opt/aus2/snippets/staging
$ time ~/bin/pushsnip 20081210-Thunderbird-2.0.0.19-beta
real    2m22.590s
user    0m0.130s
sys     0m3.794s

Sign Installers

  • Done manually using these installer-signing-instructions here
  • complete stage-merged:
# on stage
cd /data/cltbld/thunderbird-2.0.0.19/
rsync -av batch1/mar/ stage-merged/
rsync -av batch1/stage-signed/ stage-merged/
  • Create MD5 and SHA1 checksum files
# on stage
cd /data/cltbld/thunderbird-2.0.0.19/stage-merged/
~/bin/checksum-files .
  • Fix permissions & ownership (on the two SUM files, and the detached sigs)
chown -R cltbld:thunderbird .
chmod 644 *SUMS

Update Bouncer

  • Manually added entries to download.mozilla.org
  • Note for next release: Do not remove the Check Now bit on the Thunderbird-2.0.0.19 Products until well after the change to the rsync module (to prevent the likes of bug 464566)

Push to mirrors

  • push the stage-merged directory to the releases area:
# on stage (as cltbld)
rsync -av /data/cltbld/thunderbird-2.0.0.19/stage-merged/ /home/ftp/pub/thunderbird/releases/2.0.0.19/

Update rsync module

On stage.mozilla.org, add the new release to the smaller, faster, rsync module:

# on stage (as cltbld)
cd /pub/mozilla.org/zz/
vi rsyncd-mozilla-current.exclude 

and replace the previous latest release (Tb2.0.0.18) with:

+ thunderbird/releases/2.0.0.19
+ thunderbird/releases/2.0.0.19/**

Final Verification

  • Verify that releasetest points to valid bouncer links:
# this can be run from anywhere
cvs co mozilla/testing/release
cd mozilla/testing/release/updates
cat moz18-thunderbird-*.cfg | grep -v major | sed 's/betatest/releasetest/' | grep -v 2.0a | grep -v 2.0b > update.cfg
./verify.sh -t update.cfg 2>&1 | tee quickVerify.log
  • Look for any HTTP error codes besides 200 ("OK") and 302 ("Found"):
grep HTTP quickVerify.log | grep -v 200 | grep -v 302

...found 42 mirrors returned 404. Manual testing confirmed that :

http://mozilla.ftp.iij.ad.jp
http://mirror.waia.asn.au
http://ftp.twaren.net

...were now ok, but the following sites failed manual testing and were removed from mirror pool before release.

http://www.mirrorservice.org
http://mozilla.mirror.facebook.com
  • Look for mirrors that do not respond grep FAIL quickVerify.log ...one FAIL found, but passed when tried manually.
  • Before pushing final updates,verify that "release" and "releasetest" channel match:
    1. on aus2-staging
    cd /opt/aus2/snippets/staging/20081210-Thunderbird-2.0.0.19 find -type d -iregex '.release.' | perl -nle '$a = $_; $a =~ s/release/releasetest/; system("diff -r -u $_ ../20081210-Thunderbird-2.0.0.19-test/$a");'

Publish Updates to Release Channel

  • In case you need to cancel/abort updates, the quickest way to do this is here
  • While waiting for QA to finish testing, do a backup:

    on aus2-staging verify we have correct tools

    $ sudo su - cltbld $ cd ~/bin $ cvs update -dP

    backup snippets on release/live channel

    $ time ~/bin/backupsnip 20081210-Thunderbird-2.0.0.19 real 32m43.309s user 0m27.978s

    sys 0m35.344s
  • After QA finished testing the releasetest channel and go from release driver, enable release channel:

    on aus2-staging

    put snippets on release/live channel

    $ sudo su - cltbld $ time ~/bin/pushsnip 20081210-Thunderbird-2.0.0.19 real 1m26.141s user 0m0.072s

    sys 0m3.123s

Update symlink

On stage.m.o, change symlink to point to new release:

 $ cd /pub/mozilla.org/thunderbird/releases
 # confirm where latest symlinks point to where before starting
 $ ls -la latest*
lrwxrwxrwx  1 cltbld thunderbird 8 Nov 19 15:21 latest -> 2.0.0.18
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root   thunderbird 8 Feb 26  2008 latest-1.5 -> 1.5.0.14
lrwxrwxrwx  1 cltbld thunderbird 8 Nov 19 15:21 latest-2.0 -> 2.0.0.18
 $ rm latest    # (note no trailing slash)
 $ ln -s 2.0.0.19 latest
 $ rm latest-2.0   # (note no trailing slash)
 $ ln -s 2.0.0.19 latest-2.0
 # confirm latest symlinks point to newest release
 $ ls -la latest*
lrwxrwxrwx   1 cltbld thunderbird    8 Dec 30 11:44 latest -> 2.0.0.19
lrwxrwxrwx   1 cltbld thunderbird    8 Feb 26  2008 latest-1.5 -> 1.5.0.14
lrwxrwxrwx   1 cltbld thunderbird    8 Dec 30 11:44 latest-2.0 -> 2.0.0.19
