We have detected a build metrics regression from push:


As author of one of the patches included in that push, we need your help to address this regression.

Mike, I see you are the owner of bug 1352595. Can we resolve these build regressions? Or should we accept them?

Bug 1352595 is, at the moment, an experiment and does not ride the trains. The build time regressions are a known problem that was not worth addressing before even knowing if we'd like this to ever ride the trains. The installer size regressions are kinda sorta expected, and there are probably things we improve there. But for now, I'm going to WONTFIX this.

Relatedly, the improvements are wrong, cf. bug 1394902 (see bug 1352595 comment 27)
