Thunderbird Taskcluster Index tasks are consistently failing

Thunderbird 70.0

Index tasks fail in automation. I'm not completely sure what this would or could affect, but this needs to be looked at before something breaks.
See attached log file, looks like it tries to send too many headers in the HTTP request it sends off to Taskcluster.

I believe I need to add a regex to this structure in M-C:taskcluster/taskgraph/

# these regular expressions capture route prefixes for which we have a star
# scope, allowing them to be summarized.  Each should correspond to a star scope
# in each Gecko `` role.

The addition would be:


Given that this structure is looped over multiple times during the decision process, I'm wondering if it would make sense to do it differently so mozilla projects don't have this extra compare over and over that will never match.

ESR Uplift Approval Request

  • If this is not a sec:{high,crit} bug, please state case for ESR consideration: This bug has potential to affect the build process for Thunderbird. The index tasks update information about completed jobs in the Taskcluster index, which is broken for Thunderbird without this fix. (It's not all index updates, only ones that require an index task.) I have not observed any impact to these task failures, but that doesn't mean they won't occur in the future.
  • User impact if declined: No user impact, this is strictly within the CI system. Firefox builds are not affected.
  • Fix Landed on Version: 70
  • Risk to taking this patch: Low
  • Why is the change risky/not risky? (and alternatives if risky): There should be no impact on Firefox with this patch as it only adds an additional regex to check to see if a route is a candidate for summarizing in an index task.
  • String or UUID changes made by this patch: N/A

Ryan, we're building from a branch
based on
so I don't think you need to land that, I can put it onto our branch.

Or if you do, you'd have to put it onto FIREFOX_ESR_68_0_X_RELBRANCH and default.

Let me know.

If you want to land it on just the TB68 verbranch, that probably makes sense. I don't have a strong opinion on this overall.

Well, it's a one-liner. If you land it on two branches and then I do a merge, that's more work than putting that line onto our branch. Don't you think? In that case, remove the approval so it doesn't land accidentally.
