Generate updates and push betatest snippets

No problems

Update verify

moz2-linux-slave31, moz2-darwin9-slave35, win32-slave50

  • Linux: PASS
  • Win32: PASS
  • Mac: PASS

Major update generation


  • Forced 'major_update' builder after updates for both 3.5.9 and 3.6.2 were successfully generated.
    • Errored out the first time because the wrong majorUpdateBuildNumber was set in the release config.
  • Worked fine the second time around
update verify
  • Failed on all platforms the first time because it was looking for 3.5.9 in the 'releases' dir, which doesn't exist yet
  • Manually fixed the configs with this patch
  • Filed bug 553052 for the long term fix
  • Results:
    • All platforms
      • No update found for 'mn' on any platform. This is expected, as we don't have mn in 3.6.2.
      • 'sl' on all platforms:
  • These were removed between 3.6 and 3.6.2 which is why they're no. No issues here.
      • Windows
        • All the normal problems, nothing else of note
      • Linux - nothing else

Fix Major Update snippets

QA noticed that the major update snippets' detailsURL was incorrectly pointing to, when they should be pointing to

Throttling Updates

Tracked in bug 555822.

  • 3.5.8 throttled to 50%
  • 3.5.9 fully throttled (for MU)
  • 3.5.10 preemptively fully throttled

To simplify release time this was landed and pushed a few minutes in advance of the release. This is OK this time because the currently active major updates have already been unthrottled.
