Backed out in https://hg.mozilla.org/integration/mozilla-inbound/rev/28db7cfb2e4a because https://hg.mozilla.org/integration/mozilla-inbound/rev/af7f10137637#l14.8 made Linux x64 debug W-e10s(3) permafail and this patch landed between the two patches of bug 1217767 which caused the failure.
WTF Why did this get backed out when it a) had nothing to do with the permafail and b) when the permafail was clearly incorrect metadata that should just have been fixed. Given it was backed out, why didn't the bug get reopened?

That wasn't obvious to two sheriffs because this checkin had been sandwiched between the two for bug 1217767 which are two pulled updates for which the second one needed an update to this script. There wasn't any information in this bug and if it affected the other one, so it also got backed out.

Whoever would have fixed it would also have needed review (on a Saturday).

> Given it was backed out, why didn't the bug get reopened?
Sorry, that was my mistake. I hadn't noticed that it had already been merged to the other integration branches.

Trivial bustages fixes don't need review in general.

Sorry to go on about this, but the fact that two weeks have passed since this backout has created a real mess that I need to fix when trying to do the next wpt update.
