Today I have seen a lot of test failures for our Firefox UI tests and the latest Firefox 44.0 build 3 on Windows - but only for en-US! Some deeper investigation has shown that we somehow upload some strange SDK packages for those builds to the FTP server.

Sadly those files are referenced in the Mozilla Pulse build notifications:

"buildurl": ""

That means something in the Releng system behaves incorrectly or its something new which needs tweaking. Interesting is that no-one seems to know what this file is for. So do we really want to upload that?
I just noticed that the patch on bug 1233005 landed last week. So with that we seem to incorrectly set the buildurl. But what I still wonder is why we only upload it for win32/win64? Should this file go into another folder?

Also I do not see any SDK build under candidate builds even before Firefox 44.0.
It's expected that we're building the SDK as part of Firefox now. We used to build it as part of XULRunner, but that died. This transition was done in bug 1233005.

What used to be the "buildurl" here? The firefox zip?
Whereby an installer_url might also be great to have so that we can actually test the installer again, which we cannot do with the zip file having present only.
Attached patch sdkurl.patchSplinter Review
Per our IRC discussion, this sets a dummy sdkUrl variable so we don't hit the 'else' case for packageUrl. In staging here's the before:

packageUrl: ''

and after:

packageUrl: ''

Oops, sorry about that accidental closure.

And in production after after a reconfig.
I assume this bug can be marked as fixed now? Today's beta build didn't show any problem and I think the patch here relates to all release builds.
Are these builds (both SDK and .exe) available on
Yes, see my comment 0. Not sure why those only appear under Windows builds.
I believe this is fixed.
