Description

Packaged or not, test suites should have the same name.
If I understand correctly, you mean:


on http://tinderbox.mozilla.org/showbuilds.cgi?tree=Firefox, the string displayed is "xpcshell-tests"

on http://tinderbox.mozilla.org/showbuilds.cgi?tree=Firefox-Unittest, the string displayed is "xpcshell"

...and you would like the strings to be identical on the two waterfalls? Is that summary correct?

(fyi: my understanding was that as soon as the unittest-separate-from-build was running smoothly, we'd turn off doing build-and-unittest jobs. This would also solve the string mis-match!)

Yes: on waterfall, in the logs, everywhere.

(Yes and I would think this could be done yet ... but maybe I'm missing something.)

The mismatch, sure.
Still, I think the intended name is actually 'xpcshell-tests', like the command...

Yes, it is.
I'm calling this WONTFIX. Non-packaged tests are deprecated. IMHO xpcshell-tests should be the new name (matches other suites better, which also say "test" or "tests" in them). It's not worth renaming the tests on the old branches.
