Right now a buildbot instance that controls a panda device has to have the exact name of the device it wants to control. We want to move to the "any" model where a controller buildbot instance could grab any of the devices that the mozpool manages. Unfortunately that will require several places to be adjusted like buildapi's recent reporting and maybe tbpl. I don't know how to solve buildbot without changing the architecture. We could perhaps add some note to the "info" column when looking at a builder. > Time Revision Result Build# Info > Jan 07 10:05 ?? warnings #448 Warnings run_script Once we have this in place we might be able to merge the Android and the b2g pools (once we add mozpool re-imaging support to the android devices).
closing since we are decomming pandas in bug 1186615
