TL;DR; This email is FYI.
*Today the TS was restarted, bringing goodies*
- The prioritization of try jobs from the CQ, which was added last year but
broke by the Rietveld integration, was fixed again. The CQ won't hang due
to a single backlogged builder even if someone decided to bisect
browser_tests on 56 revisions on mac_rel in the middle of the day.
- Thanks for Nicolas and Bev and the team, we got more mac now so the huge
backlogging problem should be resolved for mac/mac_rel.
- You can now git cl try -b linux_rel:compile to try compiling "all" on a
specific builder. Note that the CQ was already specifying
win, mac, linux_clang, so the CQ will again ensure all the targets can
be built. I had to temporarily disable
the Chrome on iOS project typoed 'all' as 'All'.
- The CQ sometimes forget your CL. It's a known issue and I'll try to fix
it ASAP. You can work around by unchecking the bit for a few minutes* so it
completely reinitialize the state of your CL. *The amount of time can be as
low as 10 seconds, it depends how much activity is going on.
- The Try Server <-> Rietveld integration is occasionally flaky, help is
wanted (http://crbug.com/160709). I have to fix these manually for now,
please email commit-...@chromium.org for any suspicious behaviour.
*Test isolation update*
- Test isolation is progressing well; we got browser_tests_swarm green on
linux <http://build.chromium.org/p/chromium.swarm/waterfall>; it's taking a
we're getting near having it green on Windows.
- Only 2 test cases are failing on unit_tests (http://crbug.com/161481) and
got a single test case regression since yesterday; then unit_tests will be
green on both Windows and linux.
- Tracing on OSX is .. a challenge. Anyone good in D dtrace code
around who could
optimize this code<http://git.chromium.org/gitweb/?p=chromium/tools/swarm_client.git;a=b...>?
appreciate some help with that.
*Did you know?*
- Thanks to Robbie, you can now tweak git diff rename detection; Look at
the last 3 options in git cl help upload for more details. It was a top
complain that the diff on Rietveld was invalid because the git diff
heuristics was off so you can now tweak it!
- Contrary to popular belief, *only git users* can upload a patch to
Rietveld and the CQ *will* properly handle file rename, move and copy and
+x or -x executable bit change. No need for a svn checkout for any of
these, just tweak the --similarity flag.
- You can use the CQ even if the tree is a mess. As a full committer and
with a tree as stateful as these
$ git commit -a -m "Fixes goat teleporter destination.
Stop sending them to New Zealand, it's overflowing.
$ git cl upload --send-mail -c
The CL will be sent with f...@chromium.org as a reviewer and the CQ will
commit it on your behalf as soon as the tree opens. TBR bypasses OWNERS
check but not PRESUBMIT checks. NOTRY bypasses the Try Server, especially
useful for non-code changes.
- You want to set the CQ bit on a CL but that would mean reaching your
mouse? No need! Use git cl set_commit.
- You want to read the CL's comments but that would mean reaching your
mouse? No need! Use git cl comments.
Note that most commands have integrated help.
