As of this afternoon, the Apple-Win bot is the only remaining buildbot
(to my knowledge) using old-run-webkit-tests

Unfortunately, that's not likely to change soon.  But all other
platforms (and all other developers) besides Apple-Win should be using
new-run-webkit-tests (it's automatically called for you when you run

If you're still using old-run-webkit-tests for your work, I would
*love* to know and fix any issues you may have with NRWT.

In the next week I'll be moving run-webkit-tests from using a
white-list of NRWT-supported ports, to a black-list.  Meaning any
private (or future) ports which may not be using NRWT yet will need to
switch, or we'll need to add a special exception in run-webkit-tests
for that port.

Thank you for your patience in this process.  I've started to burn
down the list of polish bugs
(https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=64491) and plan to close the
"switch all bots" bug (https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=34984)
once we move run-webkit-tests from whitelisting NRWT supported ports
to blacklisting ports which still require ORWT.
