Please run the below script and reset cypress to mozilla-central. We will use this as our development branch for FlyWeb until it's ready to be merged into mozilla-central.

export REPO_PATH=mozilla-central
export TWIG=cypress

cd /repo/hg/scripts/
./reset_pp_repo.sh -s /repo/hg/mozilla/$REPO_PATH -r tip -d $TWIG
Also, when this is done, it would be great if you could ask #releng to prod the buildbot scheduler
...hrm, I see cypress was already requested by :jcramner (although admittedly didn't update the wiki page) a while back in Bug 1222301

I also see some "disposeable" branches booked since 2013, and 2012 (oak and pine respectively) as well as some other old ones. https://wiki.mozilla.org/ReleaseEngineering/DisposableProjectRepositories

I'm going to n-i hal, joshua and jonas on this to help them all figure out if there is a way to meet all needs here somehow. (and so we don't stomp on each other by doing both cypress bugs at once)

I'm happy to grab any other repository. It just looked available in the wiki so that's why I grabbed it.

Please update the wiki with the other info though. That way i can reach out to other repository renters and bug them.

There are 2 issues here as I see it:
 a) are more twigs needed (no, since bug closed, usually a capacity issue for releng
 b) how do we avoid perennial wiki-rot for this classic tragedy-of-the-commons[1] situation? Bug 1233165 opened to address that.
