If you've debugged builds from the try server in the past (or wanted to but
found the process too difficult) I'd be interested to hear from you.
Historically this has been a painful process with many manual steps, but
thanks to some work done by Peter Bengtsson on the new symbols.mozilla.org
service we are now in a position where we should be able to make this much
simpler. I've filed a bug with some initial details and thoughts but I'd
like to hear from people who have needed this in the past to make sure that we
wind up with something that's useful to you.
The base assumption that I did not list in that bug is that we're not likely to
make every try push upload symbols for every single build it does--that's a lot
of data and I suspect that most people don't need it, so we'd be wasting
resources for minimal gain. (We don't upload symbols to the symbol server for
anything that's not a nightly or release build currently--builds we ship to
users.) Given that, what would be most useful to you? A flag to pass to `mach
try` to get symbols uploaded for the builds for that push? A Treeherder action
that would retroactively upload symbols for one or more builds from a try push?
I'd love to hear from you!
