with the latest changes to buildbot-config where we can deploy a talos.zip dynamically based on a .json file in the source repository, we need to figure out which method is needed for AMO. Either: 1) we stick with the 100% hard-coded http://build.mozilla.org/talos and live with it 2) adopt a similar approach where we pull from a repository, in this case probably m-c.
What config does the AMO setup use? If we stick with 1) we could at some point forget that zips/talos.zip is used and break the AMO setup without knowing. Against which branches do they test?
http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/latest*: 3.6 9.0 right now we just do these two branches. I have a version of buildbot-config an buildbotcustom on this buildbot machine.
ah OK cool. I just realized this is a Testing/Talos bug. Let me know if you need any help from me.
yeah, this is a placeholder more than anything. I haven't updated the buildbot stuff, so I will need to resolve this before updating buildbot code on the AMO server.
we are not using talos to test performance on AMO.
