So I’m trying to understand what still exists for B2G, what’s useful to me, what’s not. The B2G nightly builds folder is confusing me:
Why is the a 2015 subdirectory, but then 3 months of builds in directories off this main one… even though they’re not the latest because there is a 2016 subdirectory.
Why don’t the nightly builds continue until the B2G project transition was completed? Wasn’t this September 2016?
Are any of these builds stable releases? Beta releases? What codenames are used for stability?
Some names I think I understand.
Emulator, Flame, Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 are all pretty self explanatory. What’s Dolphin?
-eng is an engineering build, -debug is a debugging build.
-b2gnn where nn=Gecko version?
OS version numbers are vx_y, but why are some suffix “r” and others not?
-k is Android Kitkat, -l is Lollipop.
What’s the difference between a build with -[device] and one that has no suffix?
What’s the difference between mozilla-central and mozilla-b2g…etc?
-ota means over-the-air update I assume, but I’ve no idea if this is usable.
What are all these trees? Ash, Larch, Maple and Oak? There’s also Graphene and Horizon hidden in various places.
The tinderbox builds section (named for tinderbox because it’s full of wood, because of all the tree codenames?)
contains Alder, Cedar, Cypress, Gun, Jamun, Pine… and some animals! Panda!
Then there’s Inbound, Beta, Unagi, Otoro, Aurora, FX team…
Can anyone help me understand please?
