Description

8 years ago
Switching off the 10.5 opt builds has greatly reduced the busyness of the 10.5 build machine pool. We should recycle some of this for other purposes. It _should_ be pretty easy to recycle the minis as 10.6 build machines. We should also make an effort to repurpose some of the xserves as 10.6 build machines, but we still need a ref platform for that. (That ref image is filed as bug 580346.)

Recycling as 10.6 builders is easy enough as we already have the refimage. Grabbing this to track getting more RAM installed and then the machines reimaged.

Bug#604497 filed to get extra ram installed so these 10.5 builder minis can be converted into 10.6 builder minis. 

We currently have 115 10.5osx builder minis. (72 production, 47 try). I'd swag we should start by converting 20% over to 10.6osx builders, and then see how load and wait times look, but any other suggestions welcome.

Presume this can now be morphed to recycling these machines post bug 773120?

This isn't causing a try back-up anymore, and there's nothing useful we can do with these machines.
