AUS, Updates & Upgrades

Customized distributions use a separate AUS channel to facilitate updates of custom content. For updates that do not affect customized settings, Firefox update (AUS2) has been configured so that when a request comes that starts with a channel named "release-cck-*", it will fallback and use the bits for channel name "release", which is the same as the default release. In normal cases partner updates will use this mechanism.

For this distribution, the AUS channel name is:


This channel name is set using the a value of "mozilla" for the "app.partner.mozilla" preference, and "personas" for the "app.partner.personas" preference.
