When doing record and replay to track down hard-to-reproduce bugs (usually nasty race conditions) I like to use builds that I know failed (through tinderbox logs). If that happens to be a debug build I am out of luck because we don't upload debug symbols to the symbol server. I'm not talking about breakpad symbol files here but real PDBs. It would be really nice to upload a separate symbol package to the ftp server alongside the tests/builds/breakpad files that contain these valuable bits so that I can use them.
Just for reference. Here's where the two symbol packages get created: http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/Makefile.in#191 Here's where "make upload" happens: http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/toolkit/mozapps/installer/packager.mk#589 We'd just have to add $(SYMBOL_FULL_ARCHIVE_BASENAME).zip to that list.
This got fixed by bug 1253070.
