#2678 new enhancement

Support optional import of build data from 0.8.x

Reported by: dustin Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 0.9.+
Version: 0.8.8 Keywords:


The default 'buildbot upgrade-master' shouldn't try to read the pickles from 0.8.x builds. However, at some point we should provide some option for import -- probably in 0.9.1 or so.

I doubt this import will ever work *well* - there are lots of corner cases around encodings and the like that will probably trip things up. So I din't think it should ever be enabled by default.

Pierre has suggested reading from the 0.8.x JSON API. This could be written as a contrib tool.

We could also implement this in an optional behavior of upgrade master, controlled with --import-pickles.
