Currently I see : 
https://tools.taskcluster.net/index/artifacts/#buildbot.branches.mozilla-central/buildbot.branches.mozilla-central.linux64_gecko

for the simulator for linux 64 bit
and 

https://tools.taskcluster.net/index/#gecko.v1.mozilla-central.latest.linux/gecko.v1.mozilla-central.latest.linux, where it has all the other links for emulator, flame, mulet, desktop and aries.  

Could we get a link to the simulator in the https://tools.taskcluster.net/index/#gecko.v1.mozilla-central.latest.linux/gecko.v1.mozilla-central.latest subdirectories please?

note: the builds not being listed in any of the subdirectories: https://tools.taskcluster.net/index/#gecko.v1.mozilla-central.latest.linux/gecko.v1.mozilla-central.latest is being tracked in bug 1167266

So you want:
  buildbot.branches.mozilla-central.linux64_gecko
To be listed in:
  gecko.v1.mozilla-central.latest.linux.<something>

Is that correct?
I think this is already the case, if you checkout:
  gecko.v1.mozilla-central.latest.linux.b2g-desktop.opt

See:
https://tools.taskcluster.net/index/artifacts/#gecko.v1.mozilla-central.latest.linux.b2g-desktop.opt/gecko.v1.mozilla-central.latest.linux.b2g-desktop.opt

I might be wrong here... We should really document what kinds of builds we have an where we
want them indexed. I certainly didn't expect "buildbot.branches.mozilla-central.linux64_gecko"
to be the b2g-desktop build.

Note, if you inspect the task, you can look at task.routes, to see what they are indexed under.
Any route on the form "index.<namespace>" you have the task indexed under <namespace> in index.
Well, the thought is more to conglomerate all things B2G in one folder somewhere; you're right.  We should be aware of x64 linux versus linux versus windows versus mac for the b2g desktop and .xpi (simulator ) and mulet and emulator.  Note : all 4 build types are different.

I don't know what the finished indexing should look like.  The current situation is that it's easy to get lost in trying to search for the builds.

I agree that we do need this documented; other people have mentioned the same.
I believe we would have to update multiple moz dev docs, such as but not limited to : 
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox_OS/Phone_guide/Flame/Updating_your_Flame
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox_OS/Developing_Gaia/Different_ways_to_run_Gaia
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Firefox_OS_Simulator
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox_OS/Building_the_Firefox_OS_simulator

etc. etc...

@jlal,
You are documenting in-tree logic (integration bits) this quarter. Can you take a look at documenting
index namespaces too?

I'm not quiet sure what the logic behind the current design is, "linux.b2g-desktop.opt" seems like a
lot of dots to me, where maybe we could do dashes to make less  hierarchy where we might not need it.

Naoki -- is any work here still needed?
Flags: needinfo?(jlal) → needinfo?(nhirata.bugzilla)
Yes.  Documentation work on the indexes and indexes pointing to the simulator builds.
(not to be confused with emulator, mulet, b2g desktop builds; these are all different.)
