Description

10 years ago
Right now if a testsuite crashes, we get orange with nothing visible on Tinderbox as to why it failed. (You can look in the log and see the segfault or whatever, usually.) We should "TinderboxPrint: CRASHED".
P3-Future for now. If this blocks debugging the intermittent unittests, then we should revisit.

What do you mean by "if this blocks debugging the intermittent unittests"? It certainly does.

I wrote a patch with intentionally crashing tests for lsblakk to use in testing:

Working on other stuff right now, will get back to this.

Looks like we have this for the Mochitest variants now: http://mxr.mozilla.org/build-central/source/buildbotcustom/steps/unittest.py#66
I'm not sure what bugs they happened in, but we have this for everything except Tunit now.
