The main reason is that they tried several times over a period of 5 years :P I wasn't responsible for this decision, but I'm happy about it.

Yeah, we did that several times in the past. The internal design of jemalloc has changed a lot over the years though, and most changes aren't self-contained enough to consider.

I'm getting close to triggering new nightlies on m-c, verification for the latest fix for the bug freezing nightlies is going well
waiting a bit of final verification, then will trigger nightlies
RyanVM: the builds from the 14th are good?
yes
so we should be shipping the builds from the 13th?
err, no
i forgot how nightles worked for a second there
we're good!
catlee: just triggered nightlies on m-c rev b8e9b674033bcd1f3a4c59b9d0ee7619c1a17cc5, will let you know

So it looks like they'll soon enable updates for Nightly? :-"
I am an idiot. Sorry for my poor English.

Yeah, all the build-team has to do is get windows machines to actually complete a build. Of late, about 75-80% of the builds are failing to complete, and they have not figured it out yet.... One attempt at the Nightly re-build as noted above has already failed to complete. It has been re-triggered....
