tbbuild and tbbuild/buildbotcustom are existing Mercurial repositories.

The tbbuild repository is empty. I don't know why it exists and suspect it can be deleted.

The tbbuild/buildbotcustom repo hasn't been pushed to since October 2011. Further, I don't believe the hgweb configuration actually allows access to this repo. https://hg.mozilla.org/tbbuild/buildbotcustom fails because the WSGI configuration doesn't list it. Also, nested repositories is just wonky and shouldn't be supported.

What should we do with these repos?

(You can `hg clone ssh://hg.mozilla.org/tbbuild/buildbotcustom` to access that repo if you want to poke around.)

I sadly know nothing about these repos, perhaps jcranmer or standard8 do.

I suspect these were either clones of the build/ versions originally used when we had a separate  build infra. I think they can just be deleted, there's unlikely to be anything we need there now.

hgmo: remove tbbuild (bug 1192006); r?hwine

These repos are apparently not used and offer little to no value by
existing.

MozReview Request: hgmo: remove tbbuild (bug 1192006); r?hwine

nit: redo summary/commit message to something like "remove tbbuild from web view" - I kept looking for something dealing with the physical repos :)

speaking of which, we should develop a process for archiving such repos. We have a spot where the cvs & bzr repos went. We may want to continue that practice.
Will deploy this shortly.

And I moved /repo/hg/mozilla/tbbuild to /repo/hg/dead_repositories on hgssh. Having the repo linger on hgweb machines is tolerable.
