Description Mark Linimon freebsd_committer freebsd_triage 2017-05-06 21:39:33 UTC
I am going through the tier-2 build logs and marking various things BROKEN.  I do not have the time to fix these at the moment.  There is no reason to try to build them over and over again during package builds.

Patches welcome.

Vague (which file?) and out of date.

Looks fine but maybe arm@ folks want to check *why* Firefox crashes on aarch64? Let's wait 1-2 weeks more.

Also upstream plans to transition aarch64 from Tier3 to Tier1 in Firefox 55.

Firefox 55 will also support --headless flag that may (probably not) help work around the crash.

-i18n finally built fine on aarch64. I'm not sure if it's specific to -CURRENT or 56.* as 11.0 build was blocked by a dependency (see bug 223009). However, marking BROKEN_FreeBSD_11_aarch64 would be too soon until we have results for 11.1 builds which should start sometime after 2017-10-26 (11.0 EOL).
