The build scripts reside in <filename class="directory">/releng/scripts-snapshot/scripts</filename> or <filename class="directory">/releng/scripts-release/scripts</filename> respectively, to avoid collisions between an <literal>RC</literal> build from a releng branch versus a <literal>STABLE</literal> snapshot from the respective stable branch.
A separate dataset exists for the final build images, <filename class="directory">/snap/ftp</filename>. This directory contains both snapshots and releases directories. They are only used if the <literal>EVERYTHINGISFINE</literal> variable is defined in <filename>main.conf</filename>.
The <literal>EVERYTHINGISFINE</literal> variable name was chosen to avoid colliding with a variable that might be possibly set in the user environment, accidentally enabling the behavior that depends on it being defined.
As <filename></filename> iterates through the master list of combinations and locates the per-build configuration file, a <acronym>ZFS</acronym> dataset is created under <filename class="directory">/releng</filename>, such as <filename class="directory">/releng/12-amd64-GENERIC-snap</filename>. The <literal>src/</literal>, <literal>ports/</literal>, and <literal>doc/</literal> trees are checked out to separate <acronym>ZFS</acronym> datasets, such as <filename class="directory">/releng/12-src-snap</filename>, which are then cloned and mounted into the respective build datasets. This is done to avoid checking out a given tree more than once.
Assuming these filesystem paths, <filename></filename> would be invoked as:
<prompt>#</prompt> <userinput>cd /releng/scripts-snapshot/scripts</userinput>
<prompt>#</prompt> <userinput>./ -b <literal>stable/<replaceable>12</replaceable>/</literal></userinput>
<prompt>#</prompt> <userinput>./ -c ./builds-<replaceable>12</replaceable>.conf</userinput>
<prompt>#</prompt> <userinput>./ -c ./builds-<replaceable>12</replaceable>.conf</userinput>
Once the builds have completed, additional helper scripts are available to generate development snapshot emails which are sent to the <literal></literal> mailing list:
<prompt>#</prompt> <userinput>cd /releng/scripts-snapshot/scripts</userinput>
<prompt>#</prompt> <userinput>./ -c ./builds-<replaceable>12</replaceable>.conf | ./ &gt; snapshot-<replaceable>12</replaceable>-mail</userinput>
The generated output should be double-checked for correctness, and the email itself should be PGP signed, in-line.
These helper scripts only apply to development snapshot builds. Announcements during the release cycle (excluding the final release announcement) are created from an email template. A sample of the email template currently used can be found <link xlink:href="">here</link>.
