Right up front, this is only being proposed for the B2G release branches, i.e. b2g32/b2g34/b2g37. The Taskcluster-based jobs running on trunk/master will not be affected.

At this point, Gip is still running across all trees, but hidden by default. We are constantly dealing with buildbot limitations caused by the number of different test suites we have to support. Therefore, one suggestion that came up was to fully turn off the buildbot-based Gip tests on the B2G release branches.

In the case of debug, they've been busted for basically ever and it seems highly unlikely anybody is going to start paying attention to them now all of a sudden. In the case of opt, it seems unlikely we're going to spend any time watching them at this point as QA resources are shifted to v2.5. Also, presumably any Gip -> Gij test migration work will be happening on trunk/master and will not be backported to older releases.

Johan, Naoki suggested that you make the final call on this. Does the above sound reasonable to you? I think that at a bare minimum, we should turn off debug, but I don't see much reason to keep opt around either at this point.

Let's deactivate them on the old branches (b2g37 and below). Like you said, no back port will happen, but each of the branches you mentioned is code complete. The risk of having a regression caught by Gip is low.
