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[1], but 
thanks to some work done[2] 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[3] 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!
