Right now it's possible to delete releases that still have rules pointing to them. This is bad because it leaves the rules in a very weird state. One could easily remove a release that is active without knowing it because the UI doesn't even give any sort of warning. We should probably disallow this at the database schema level with a foreign key. IIRC this wasn't implemented originally because sqlite doesn't support them. I'm sure we can find a way to work around this.

Not too sure if it is desired this way. But still would like to get some review.

Review of attachment 8724159 [details] [diff] [review]:

This is a very good start!

It looks like sqlite actually supports foreign keys as of 3.6.19 (which is ~6 years old). I'd prefer database level enforcement of this because it minimizes the possibility of a bug in our code, could you give that a shot?

A couple other things in line:

The web layer isn't the right place to do this, even if you end up implementing it yourself instead of using a foreign key. If the foreign key doesn't work out, this should go in https://github.com/mozilla/balrog/blob/master/auslib/db.py#L1089. Either way, you should add tests both at the web layer (which you're doing) and the database layer (like https://github.com/mozilla/balrog/blob/master/auslib/test/test_db.py#L1020)

I think the queries below aren't quite right either, but let's see if the foreign key works out before worrying about that.

I don't think you should be doing any mocking in these tests, regardless of whether this gets implemented as a foreign key or manually. There's no external services we're depending on either (the database is in-memory sqlite, so it's fine to depend on that).

I think you're also testing multiple cases in one test...they should be separated out into individual tests. I see at least:

..but there might be other cases to cover as well.

Looks like not. Feel free to reassign yourself if you like, though.
