The Blink AutoRollBot (ARB) seeks to automatically release Blink (roll into Chromium DEPS) as often as possible.
Gardeners should not have to think about the ARB. They should feel free to close the CL's it generates, land other rolls manually (it will notice a post a new roll), or ignore rolling entirely. You won't break the bot. It shouldn't break you (or the tree).
If you have any trouble please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
ARB is a small python script (crbug.com/242461) maintained by email@example.com. The source code is available, patches welcome.
ARB wakes up every few minutes, looks for an active blink roll. If the roll has failed or timed out (1 day) it will close the issue and start a new one. It will also notice if DEPS has rolled past its in-progress roll and close (earlier than the CQ might notice by the patch failing to apply).
If for some reason the roll-bot is causing trouble anyone can stop it by using the word "STOP" (in all caps) in a comment on this issue. The roll-bot can later be resumed by closing the issue.
GardenOMatic webkit-patch garden-o-matic and garden-o-matic.appspot.com both link to the currently active roll from the AutoRollBot.
You can find the CL for the current auto-roll in the "Outgoing reviews" section at https://firstname.lastname@example.org. (It seems now the correct link: https://codereview.chromium.org/user/Dirk%20Pranke)
