To test build automation, we need a mac buildbot slave. This needs to run in a dedicated box, either a mac mini or a mac blade is fine, so long as it runs the identical ref platform to the current production build mac machine. I'd like to call this machine "bld-mac-slave01".
From offline comments, bm-xserve14 is available. It is idle, and has unmodified, clean install, so ready for use.
bm-xserve14.build.mozilla.org is now running buildbot slave "macosx-slave1". This slave is connecting to buildbot master on staging-prometheus-vm, doing builds to completion, and showing green on buildbot master.
Note: because this machine (bm-xserve14) is Intel based, not PowerPC, we cannot use it for the Mozilla1.8 / FF2.0.0.x branch. However, we can use this for TRUNK / FF3.x branch, so updating summary accordingly. Reopening bug until I verify all is ok with staging automation on TRUNK.
Slave still ok. However, need buildmaster to handle TRUNK in addition to the 1.8 branch before we can close this bug. Havent been able to work on this recently, so putting this back in the pool for now.
This has been done for awhile.
