Upcoming switching DEBUG unit tests from Win2003 build machines to Win7 test machines

We have enabled debug unit tests for Windows 7 Rev3 machines.
We are now running debug unit tests on both Win2003 builders and Win7 test machines (except 1.9.1 and 1.9.2).
You can see that we have double coverage for Windows debug unit tests
You should start seeing them on tbpl (except crashtest, reftests and xpcshell). If not check on the tinderbox page and make sure that the builder is "active" and "scrape" is checked as well.

We have enabled this for all branches (except 1.9.1 and 1.9.2) and we will soon adjust the try_chooser parsing to run them on the tryserver as well (it's a bug).

When will we do the switch?
  • when we have no perma-orange
  • when all test suites are shown on tbpl
  • when all working branches are showing them on tbpl
  • when we get approval to do so
If you have any questions, ask them on this blog post.
If you notice any fall-outs comment on bug bug 614956.

NOTE: This will impact slightly our wait times on the Win7 testing pool but reduce the wait times for build jobs.

  1. I have hid them from mozilla-central until we fix the try server coverage.

    The fix might come in the next few hours.
