I might have used the patch-upload method for the mozilla-central try server once, can't really remember. The push-to-try method, however, I use every single time I'm going to push a checkin-needed patch for someone else, every single time I think I should be sure a patch works on more than just whichever OS I'm currently on, and every single time I don't feel like sitting through running tests myself. No matter how small the difference in actual effort, the cognitive difference between "hg qdiff > ../foopy, open a browser, try to remember the URL, ask on IRC, wait, load a web page, select a cert, upload a patch, um what did I name it" and "hg push -f cc-try" is *massive*.

That's a very good idea, I've filed a Mozilla IT bug request to get a comm-central-try repository created to support this.

<> has been created. Now need to fiddle with the try-server configuration to pull from there.
Okay, I've populated try-comm-central with comm-central, and I've managed to push a mq patch to it, great.

Still broken, as the tryserver recieves the change, but gets confused when it's time to determine what it should be building. Right now, it's failing to pick a mozconfig, but I suspect there will be more bustage. Needs more work.
