--link-to-latest option for


(Release Engineering :: General, defect, P4)



(Not tracked)

(Whiteboard: [automation][upload])

If the latest-* directories are branch- and platform-specific (as they are for mobile now), we can --link-to-latest instead of --release-to-latest.

--link-to-latest would, for example:

  rm -f latest-mozilla-central-maemo4
  ln -s 2010/07/2010-07-20-13-mozilla-central-maemo4 latest-mozilla-central-maemo4

This has the benefits of:

1) slightly less disk usage
2) no old file cleanup needed! the dated dir should only have files from this specific build, so the softlink would, as well.
3) no unmaintainable twiddly per-file regex "logic"
4) gets us closer to considering the upload directory as the unit, rather than each file. upload directories have saved me many headaches elsewhere.

Still near&dear to my heart.
I'm able to solve the multilocale upload issue with the --builddir (to be renamed --subdir at some point) however, so this is not as urgent.

Blocks: 950119 is getting updated to push to s3, and this operation won't make sense there (and this script will probably die in the forseeable future).
