eg https://public-artifacts.taskcluster.net/-XxUtCX2SR2DA9Y7sOQ49g/0/public/logs/live_backing.log [taskcluster:error] Task was aborted because states could not be created successfully. Error calling 'link' for taskclusterProxy : Failed to initialize taskcluster proxy service. [taskcluster 2017-08-29 04:00:18.090Z] Unsuccessful task run with exit code: -1 completed in 90.392 seconds We haven't seen this with other 56.0b7 tasks, and it was repeatable.
We determined in irc that this is because the taskId starts with `-`. There's a `slugid.nice()` function which should work to create nicer taskIds that don't start with `-`.
I'm on a patch for releasetasks. This may be a fallout of bug 1259627.

We still use 0.0.24, which doesn't support nice slug IDs. Upgrading the library is blocked by https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1257245#c1
OK. I filed a bug to not fail on such taskIds, although that's probably easier said than done with Golang's command-line processing.
There's maybe this workaround. It's not fantastic, but it may temporarily solve the problem while either bug 1257245 or bug 1394894 is resolved. What do you think, Rail? (If it's good enough, I'll make the puppet patch)

I verified the assumption in comment 1, before landing the patch. I created a copy of the task with a different ID, and it worked immediately. Let's make that puppet patch.  https://tools.taskcluster.net/groups/xzIcLIHqSL2rEcHsUf9j9Q/tasks/GiGQzjU2SUGbsBlsX_nYsw/details

Summary: Snap generation fails with "Error calling 'link' for taskclusterProxy" → Make releaserunner generate nice slugIds
I had forgotten to add the slug package to  (I forgot release runner was running python 2). Apart from that, 56.0b7 went out without any failure (related to slugIds).  https://releng-puppet2.srv.releng.scl3.mozilla.com/python/packages/
