Yep, use that and if it's something urgent, ping me over on irc to look
at the problem. Justdave can also help but if it's something wrong at
hw/vmware/console level, then a Mozilla IT (or whatever their name is
these days) is the ones to contact via their own BMO product.

Yes, please, gerv, ask me before doing massive infra related changes.
There are lot of things going on that unfortunately are only known by me
as there has not been anybody else working on these things..

Looks like somebody blew away all local changes on the tip installs. It
was changed to run a custom Perl 5.10.1 install on the system using the
official instructions available on Bugzilla FAQ.

Whoever messed with its git checkout is free to learn how to do that and
cleanup the mess or ask me to do it for them.

Otherwise, landfill is due to get replaced with a CentOS 6 that has Perl
5.10.1 as a system level component so that these shenanigans are not
necessary anymore.

This is also shows what's the problem with requiring too new stuff..
