What is the timing on the builds with Mozilla vs. Phoenix? If, for example, I look over at the "Mozilla Builds" board and see that something interesting happened with the 12/29 Mozilla build, would that show up in Phoenix 20021229 or Phoenix 20021230?

Phoenix builds show up around noon NY time. Mozilla builds show up around midnight, about 12 hours before. They are drawn from the same source. The build ID itself tells you what time of day it was built.

This does not answer the question of thenightfly42

When a bug is fixed in the 20021229 build of mozilla. When is that same bug fixed in phoenix? is it fixed in the 20021229 build or the 20021230 build?

when a build is released at midnight, which date does it get? The current Mozilla is 12/30, and so is the current Phoenix. So I would say that Phoenix is the Mozilla 12/30 plus 12 hours more worth of stuff (give or take)

If Mozilla builds are available before the Phoenix builds, then the Phoenix builds do have the changes made in Mozilla's source.
In other words, a but fixed in the 20021229 build of Mozilla should be fixed in the 20021229 build of Phoenix.

So it's possible that, if a bug were fixed at 9 AM EST, Phoenix would have the fix before Mozilla? Weird.

You can always use CVS and have something before the official nightly for either is out.
