I'd like to inquire about the future of MIPS and SH4 assemblers.
A long time ago we had buildbots for MIPS and SH4 platforms (hosted by Holger).
But their last builds were at 29th June, machine were stopped, bots were removed
from build.webkit.org (2 months before!). Is there anyone interested in maintaining
MIPS and SH4 buildbots (and probably EWS bots) to catch build failures early?
Gábor is working on fixing https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=79040 and it
seems the fix will affect all assemblers. But I don't think if it is a good idea
to try to fix MIPS and SH4 assemblers blindly without EWS and buildbots. And who
knows if MIPS and SH4 builds work now or not?
