Just a note: the SRCSRV_ROOT env variable needs to be set to "" if it isn't already
Jesse, while this is much better than what we have so far; is there any way we can get this to work in cases where there is more than one hg repo?

Aka: SeaMonkey/TB.

Or even when we crash in CVS parts of SeaMonkey (ldapsdk), or the *other* hg repo in SM (domi)

-            return "cvs:%s:%s:%s" % (self.clean_root, file, self.revision)
+            return "hg:%s:%s:%s" % (self.clean_root, file, self.revision)

This change doesn't make any sense. Why are you changing the CVSFileInfo class to return filenames starting with hg:?

-def SourceIndex(fileStream, outputPath, cvs_root):
+def SourceIndex(fileStream, outputPath, hg_root):

I feel like I don't want the CVS srcsrv bits removed entirely, but I guess given that the code lives in Hg, I can't really justify that.

+    pdbStreamFile.write('''\r\nSRCSRVVERCTRL=http\r\nHTTP_EXTRACT_TARGET=%hgserver%/index.cgi/raw-file/%var3%/%var2%\r\nSRCSRVTRG=%http_extract_target%\r\nSRCSRVCMD=\r\nSRCSRV: source files ---------------------------------------\r\n''')

You don't need the index.cgi in the URL anymore.

-        cvs_root = os.environ.get("SRCSRV_ROOT")
+        # tries to get hgroot from the .mozconfig first - if it's not set
+        # the tinderbox hg_path will be assigned further down
+        hg_root = os.environ.get("SRCSRV_ROOT")

I'm not really wild about all this s/cvs/hg/ renaming. In addition, the HgFileInfo class above already checks this environment variable on its own, so I don't think this change is really necessary. How about you just rename this variable to vcs_root instead, and make the language more generic? Just refer to it as a "Version Control System" instead of mentioning CVS or Hg specifically.

This looks like it's pretty close. If you can fix up those few things you'll be in good shape!

*UPDATED* Add Source Server support to for Mercurial builds

I tried this out and it still has some issues. It's a bit tough to test, just due to the way we get the hg changeset (`hg id -i` will give you a result that you can't use elsewhere if you're using MQ, and will add a + if you have local changes, so it's tough to test with a patch applied.)

First, I hit a few problems when trying to run this without SRCSRV_ROOT set. We should be able to make this work in the HG case, since unlike with CVS, we can determine the root here and it will work. (The tinderboxes all pull via HTTP.) Can you add these changes to your patch?

Ok, those two changes aside, I have some other things that seem broken: (sorry for missing these on the first go-round)

+    pdbStreamFile.write('''SRCSRV: ini ------------------------------------------------\r\nVERSION=2\r\nINDEXVERSION=2\r\nVERCTRL=http\r\nSRCSRV: variables ------------------------------------------\r\nHGSERVER=''')

SRCSRVTRG=%http_extract_target% seems wrong. This variable should resolve to the full path on the client that the file is extracted to. I think it needs to be:

%targ% is the directory that the debugger will put source files in. The other entries are the parts of the file line, separated by asterisks, which is generated here: My proposed version would take a line like:
and give you:

I think we can ditch this too, since it's empty anyway. (And having an empty one might confuse srcsrv.)

Finally, it has occurred to me that you might not know how to fully test this. After you run "make buildsymbols", you'll get a symbol archive. Currently it winds up in a directory next to your objdir, like mine is:

You'll need to unzip this somewhere that you can access via HTTP. I tested it on my web site, it should look something like this when done:

You'll then need to package your build--"make package" in the objdir will do the trick, you'll get a zip file in objdir/dist. Then you'll need to unzip and run that build on a different machine, and debug it. You can follow the directions here: , but for your symbol path, instead of, use the HTTP server where you unzipped your symbols. You'll also need to follow some of the directions here: although you can skip the parts about CVS.

*UPDATED* Add Source Server Support for Mercurial to

Changes made as per ted's comments, however SRCSRVTRG is unchanged as it seems it must be set up as the %HTTP_EXTRACT_TARGET% in order to successfully retrieve the source code.

One other note: This implementation works successfully in Visual Studio 2008 and WinDBG, however Visual Studio 2005 doesn't like it. According to ted this could be due to incorrect implementation of the source server in 2005.

Ted, any progress so far here? Looks like we have to ask for approval...

I meant to test source server support on a nightly before asking for approval, but never got around to it. If anyone else wants to try it out, feel free to let me know if it's working right.
I tried to verify this bug by running a test on Windows 7 beta and the latest version of WinDBG installed. Setting up the symbols server wasn't a problem and I can see the source location in the call stack window. Sadly I don't get a dialog which prompts me to download the source. I was running the steps from this page:

Ted or Josh, how can I get WinDBG to help me in fetching the source code?

Comment 16

Needs verification on trunk before we land it on branch. It's possible the patch doesn't work perfectly as-is, or we're missing some configuration on the tinderboxes.
As given in comment 12 I cannot help in testing it. Doesn't work or I do the wrong steps. Removing keyword for now.

If someone has a .pdb file (any one will do) from a recent trunk build, and WinDBG installed, could you run:
pdbstr -r -p:file.pdb -s:srcsrv

and attach the output? (pdbstr lives under the WinDBG install dir somewhere.)

Ok then, it's completely missing the source server info. We might be missing the PDBSTR_PATH environment variable on the build machines.

I have no other cvs.exe installed beside the one from mozilla build. Looks like it works fine now and we need a docs update.

Yeah, the source server with builds from Mercurial obviously doesn't require cvs.exe. :) Just needs clarification in the docs.

FWIW, I landed bug 520141 on 1.9.2 and 1.9.1, so source server should work fine in the 1.9.2 nightlies.

Comment 37

It actually just requires some clarification. Using the source server for Hg builds doesn't require cvs.exe (obviously), and won't prompt you with the "is it ok to run cvs.exe" dialog. It's actually even simpler than it previously was.

Have a look, make any tweaks necessary if you see issues. This article still mentions cvs for now, but adds discussion of the Hg changes.
