I’ve been setting up Bors with a privately hosted buildbot instance. It’s almost working, but I’m having issues with the status checks.
Here’s a screenshot showing the problem:
Bors saw that the buildbot posted a success status and commented, saying that the build has succeeded, yet GitHub seems to think that it is expecting a status update from buildbot. (Notice also that bors went silent after this, not responding to a
ping or a
retry – separate issue?)
Here’s the bors config:
status = [ "buildbot/buildbot-build-script" ] timeout_sec = 7200
The name of the required buildbot status check, as seen in the branch protection rules, is “buildbot/buildbot-build-script” (same as above).
What I do find odd is that, on one of my other repos I had a “bors” status check, but in the problem repo there is not one listed. Yet bors is most certainly installed on the repo, as we have seen it commenting in response to requests. Perhaps this has something to do with it?
If I go to the commits view of trying branch on github, there is a green check mark next to the commit, suggesting that status reporting from buildbot is working. That and bors must have seen this status check in order to say that the build passed.
So I’m a little confused as to what’s going on.
Any ideas? Thanks
