Having just pushed the patch from bug 1275037, seamonkey-release
is getting the following errors from "Cron <root@staticadm>":

Couldn't get build lock; waiting another 15 seconds...
Couldn't get build lock; waiting another 15 seconds...
Couldn't get build lock; waiting another 15 seconds...
Couldn't get build lock. at bin/build-exclusive.pl line 51.

with the following subject:

 (cd /data/static/build/seamonkeyproject-org; bin/build-exclusive.pl; /data/static/deploy -nq www.seamonkeyproject.org)

who do I ask for help?

Jens, any idea?  I've scanned through the patch for bug 1275037, and I'm
not sure how I did this.

Sorry, no idea. You need to get someone with access to the build host to check/reset the cron job, maybe remove the lock file, too. Don't know who exactly to ask, though.

with the help from :jlaz (*thanks!*) found out that we have three
cron jobs running:

# update www.seamonkeyproject.org
*/10          0-7,9-23 * * * root <script>
0-10,30-59/10 8        * * * root <script>
20            8        * * * root <script>

*sanitized for public consumption.. :)

due to some lock contention issue..  two (or more) jobs were probably
trying to get a lock on the same lockfile (/tmp/smprojorg-build).

I told :jlaz to comment out those and create a new cron job:

*/10 * * * * root <script>  

Since I don't know who created the original cronjob,  perhaps someone
can explain the cron jobs.  (btw,  I had trouble groking that 2nd
entry.. :)

Anyway.. this seems to be unhorked.
