Open issues/risks

BYOB currently requires some extra work with reviewing, signing etc Partner Builds and the main goal of BYOB - creating some way to have customizations for enterprises is now kind of superseded by the ESR.

So i think of the ways a) letting BYOB what it is today and letting users play with it. But removing the bookmark / bookmark toolbar feature to reduce reviewing efforts and using the new signing server so that the work required to keep byob up is reduced.

b) using a internal instance of byob to create custom partner repacks like we did for holiday edition of firefox with being able to change the distribution.ini - uploading of extensions etc - instead of doing a lot of stuff via vim edits of distribution.ini on the partnerdist server
