The merge from mozilla-central to mozilla-aurora happening TOMORROW (2011-04-12) at ~6:00 am PDT.
There is some discussion as to what “merge on 2011-04-12” means. It is generally open to two interpretations:
- Developers can land fixes up to 11:59 pm PDT on 2011-04-12 and the actual merge will happen on 2011-04-13 PDT
- Developers can land fixes up to the merge point, which happens sometime onÂ 2011-04-12
We are going with #2 above and intend to do the merge @ ~6:00 am PDT.
How will you know the merge is done / mozilla-central is tracking for Firefox 6 instead of 5?
There will be a version bump on mozilla-central to 6.0a1 (see bug 648653). Anything before that will generally be on track for the next Firefox version, anything after will likely wait for a future release.
What happens if the version bump hasn’t happened and it is after 6:00 am PDT?
We’ve decided to give some more time, you can still land for the upcoming Firefox release (likely for < 24 hours).
Please use best judgement when pushing late tonight and tomorrow. We will NOT be closing the tree…normal mozilla-central tree rules apply.
