#13422 new defect

Bug tracker's main page has obsolete instructions and link

Description

Please consider the following:

  1. The word buildbot is currently a dead link (https://buildbot.scummvm.org/builds.html), which should be fixed to https://buildbot.scummvm.org/#/dailybuilds.
  2. The instruction to use the development builds is no longer true, and should probably be fixed to use the latest Branch master. I.e. use the Branch master and not the stable builds unless you were explicitly instructed to test the stable build.
  3. Explain the difference between ​daily build and buildbot instead of just stating "When using".

Thanks! I updated the buildbot link and added the current label for the buildbot development builds.

At this point the only non-buildbot daily build is for Windows and, afaik, the difference is that it comes from rootfather's server and is packaged in an installer instead of a zip file. I agree that it would be good to have some details on the differences, though I think the download page would be the best place for it.

But when you enter Buildbot you can clearly see Windows (installation-free, but still Windows), see screenshot:

the download page would be the best place for it.

No problem, but it should therefore state "more details are found in the download page". And of course make sure the download page indeed explains the difference.

Replying to lwcorp:

  1. The instruction to use the development builds is no longer true, and should probably be fixed to use the latest Branch master. I.e. use the Branch master and not the stable builds unless you were explicitly instructed to test the stable build.

These are still development builds though, so that part is true. Branch master just specifies which code branch they're produced from. We could clarify that development builds are the ones under the "Branch Master" column, something like:

use the development builds (located under column "ScummVM latest Branch master")

Or we could change the naming of the column in the buildbot's daily builds page.
