The draft is currently in:

Once #28453 merges, I will update the document with:

  • Update git scripts
  • Update Tor Travis Cron Jobs instructions
  • Jenkins test builds
  • Jenkins deb builds, including nightlies and experimental-(latest release), which needs to have a successful build before:
    • Debian website instructions, including JavaScript and no script lists
    • Chutney Travis CI
    • Stem Travis CI
    • sbws Travis CI (the sbws CI does not use multiple tor versions yet, so add a ticket number)

The Travis Cron Job instructions are:

  • make sure you have write access to
    • if you don't, open a ticket to be added to the GitHub network-team group
  • go to
  • log in to Travis using your GitHub account
  • scroll down to the Crop Jobs section
  • tap the bin icon to remove jobs for end of life branches
  • for active maint branches (master, alpha, latest stable), we want a daily job, that doesn't run if there has been a build (triggered by a merge) in the last 24 hours
  • for backport maint branches (old stables, LTS), we want a weekly job, that doesn't run if there has been a build in the last 24 hours

I'm going to wait about a week for all the code to merge, and further config changes to be made. See the children of #30835.
