Teething problems with archives

Hi All,

I am currently fixing a mess with the archives for 2.53.18.1.

There are a lot of extraneous artifacts that were stored there and now I’m cleaning them up.

Thankfully, this will be the last time I’m using this way of pushing to release.

My apologies for the mess.

Updates fixed

Hi All,

The updates have been fixed as well well as a lot of the missing files.

Seems like as if I simply cannot handle multiple changes at the same time.

My apologies for the inconveniences caused.

Updates… erm.. update.

Hi all,

I have taken a look at what’s going on and am a bit puzzled.

  • Linux-i686 locales:
    • Missing: el, en-US, es-AR, es-ES, fi, fr, ka, nb-NO, nl, pl, pt-PT, ru, sk, sv-SE
    • Existing: cs, de, en-GB, hu, it, ja, pt-BR, zh-CN, zh-TW
  • Linux x86-64 locales:
    • Missing: de, el, en-US, es-ES, hu, it, ka, nb-NO, ru, sk, sv-SE, zh-TW
    • Existing: cs, en-GB, es-AR, fi, fr, ja, nl, pl, pt-BR, pt-PT, zh-CN
  • Mac locales:
    • Missing: cs, en-US, es-AR, fr, pt-BR, sk, zh-CN
    • Existing: de, el, en-GB, es-ES, fi, hu, it, ja-JP-mac, ka, nb-NO, nl, pl, pt-PT, ru, sv-SE, zh-TW
  • Win32 Locales:
    • Missing: cs, de, fi, nl, pl, pt-PT, ru, sv-SE
    • Existing: el, en-GB, en-US, es-AR, es-ES, fr, hu, it, ja, ka, nb-NO, pt-BR, sk, zh-CN, zh-TW
  • Win64 locales:
    • Missing: cs, de, en-GB, en-US, fr, it, ja, pl, pt-BR
    • Existing: el, es-AR, es-ES, fi, hu, ka, nb-NO, nl, pt-PT, ru, sk, sv-SE, zh-CN, zh-TW

No, I have no understand of the pattern of missing files.

So I’ll be changing the updates to using the ‘old’ place while I fix the ‘new’ place. (*wink*)

Migration away from archive.mozilla.org addendum

Hi All,

In my previous blog post on the SeaMonkey Project migrating away from archive.mozilla.org, it seems as there is some misunderstanding in the wording(I’ve just changed it on the request of Mozilla).

When I stated “We need to stop using archive.mozilla.org” and “They will most likely be left as is until Mozilla blows it away (or I do).”,  I literally meant “We” as in “the SeaMonkey Project”.

So in essence, what I *was* trying to state (and failing miserably) is that “The SeaMonkey Project needs to migrate away from archive.mozilla.org.”   After 2023, when you go to https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/”, you will not see seamonkey there.

End of an era.

Migrating off archive.mozilla.org

Hi all,

This is a heads up to all.  The SeaMonkey project needs to stop using archive.mozilla.org by year end.

So, we are migrating our files from archive.mozilla.org to a storage system on Azure.  However, I want to note that there are files there that I will not be moving.  They will most likely be left as is until Mozilla blows it away (or I do).

The only folders that are being migrated are the “releases” and nightly folder.  [I’m currently copying the files from releases to the new storage area, so nightly will need to take a back seat.]  The rest will be “decommissioned” as they are relics of a past that we can no longer go back to.  Tinderbox is dead.   Comm-* builds are no longer feasible/relevant.  Candidates are also no longer relevant.

I’m hoping to setup the new storage system as a ‘static’ page so that one can just go to (for example, https://archive.seamonkey-project.org/) and you can see both the nightly and releases directory.   At this point in time, I’m working on it.   The copying is taking the longest.

As the person who’ve worked on and around archive.mozilla.org, I feel sad to see all those files go poof. I guess it’s a feeling of nostalgia(makes me think of those years working with Callek to get the releases out on Buildbot) rather than actual utility.  Once Jan 1 comes around, it will be the end of an era and of course, the beginning of a new one.

Anyway, *if* you are interested in keeping those files, I’d suggest you download them as soon as possible.

Best regards,

:ewong
