This switch has just taken place in bug 782239.
To open and close the trees, you now need to use:
Authentication is performed using BrowserID/Persona - if you've missed the previous sheriffpass bug reminders / dev.platform post, please see bug 758886 for how to obtain permissions.
This switch means that we are one step closing to ditching tinderbox & makes the sheriff's lives much easier, since multiple trees can have their state changed simultaneously (eg for an infra-caused tree closure), status messages can now be saved/restored & we have a proper API! 
A big thank you to catlee, ted, standard8, graememcc, Swatinem & bkero for treestatus/hg+tbpl patches/reviews/pushes to production :-)
