Firefox 3.1 Branching Schedule

(Please direct responses to

Hi All,

To follow-up on my post yesterday, here's then when and how of branching:

  • Tag mozilla-central and l10n repositories with GECKO_1_9_1_BASE so we know where we branched going forward

  • File IT bugs to have mozilla-central, l10n repositories cloned and a Firefox 3.1 Tinderbox created.

  • While this is happening RelEng will do as much setup of infrastructure as possible.

  • Once the clones are finished we will do some tests in our staging environment.

  • When were satisfied with those results we will start push those infrastructure changes to production.

ETA on being fully up and running (that is to say: parity with mozilla-central) is early in the PST day Monday, November 24th. We do expect to have infrastructure up this week but some baking time, especially for Talos, is important.

Other important information:

  • mozilla-central will NOT be used for trunk development until after we tag for Firefox 3.1b2. Once that happens we will bump mozilla-central versions to 1.9.2a1pre/3.2a1pre.

  • The new mozilla-1.9.1 repository will be rebranded to Shiretoko to avoid confusion is the tracking bug for branching, for those interested in tracking the blow-by-blow.
