Bug Description

Lots of these branches just hang around forever:

Would be nice if they were marked as 'Merged' after being pushed to their respective trunks.

dobey proposes also deleting them at merge&clean time. That's an option to consider, I assumed they had forensic value to keeping them around but I could be wrong.

Might make more sense to do it from here where we have access to the merge objects:

Something like:

branch = lp.load(self.lp_branch)
branch.lifecycle_status = 'Merged'

Ok I just rolled out a branch that does this for future merges, but it still would be nice to write something that goes through the enormous backlog and marks them all as merged. Not sure how to distinguish between in-use branches and merged ones though. Probably would need some 'bzr missing' magic.

Also uncertain is whether or not lp automatically marks the branches back to 'Development' when we push new commits to them. If not it'll get confusing when we push to 'Merged' branches and they'll be hidden from you.

Ok I wrote a little script for this to mark all branches as Abandoned:

python3 - <<EOF
from cupstream2distro.launchpadmanager import lp
for branch in'Development'):
    branch.lifecycle_status = 'Abandoned'

For some reason it didn't get all 800 branches on the first run so I had to run it a few times but as of right now the train has no branches in 'Development' status any longer. I confirmed in staging that new builds will mark the branches back to 'Development' even if they were already marked 'Abandoned', so for right now if you're looking for a branch from an active silo you'll have to tell lp to show you branches with "any status" (instead of any active status). All future builds will show up correctly and be marked as merged when the silo merges.
