We decided to make 10.8 the only Mac test platform for b2g-inbound during one of those desperate flurries before a b2g workweek when they wound up pushing less than normal, rather than more than normal, choosing 10.8 for the single reason that it finishes tests faster than 10.6.

Now we've got a perpetual 10-20 hour backlog of 10.8 tests, so that when someone actually does need 10.8 results for a patch affecting 10.8 itself, they'll typically have to wait a full day for results on Try, while b2g-inbound merrily runs 10.8 tests on merges from mozilla-central.

It was RyanVM who made the 10.8 decision, so my contention is that his "yeah, 10.6 is fine" (which we already have) is all the stakeholder agreement you need to switch to 10.6.
yeah, 10.6 is fine
A whole day sounds pretty optimistic. I actually thought they needed to wait for a long enough tree closure or a weekend.
Nope, even with open trees, some slaves make it through to try and twigs, like right now https://tbpl.mozilla.org/?tree=Try&rev=fddf1bd900e3 (the current back end of the backlog) has two suites running despite it being an open-tree middle of the day.
Perhaps, it's just that simple.
