Details

At the moment, Taskcluster supports 2 priority levels: high and normal[1]. Last Friday, Releng had 4 releases in flight, and we hit an issue where the least important release + central were taking almost all the available workers. In order to avoid that, we would need a finer set of priority. :bhearsum pointed out Buildbot currently implements 6 levels, which are used this way[2]

7 levels, 0-6 :)
Jonas, based on this, does this mean we need to get the claimWork rolled out to all workers before we can support > 2 priorities?

We definitely need claimWork rolled out for workerTypes with many workers... Maybe we can ignore small pools.

Afaik our current plan is 5 levels... The hard part is naming then all.. 5 is like lowest, low, normal, high, highest.

Other name ideas are welcome, numbers are generally bad as they are hard to order...
