I'll be happy to schedule the switch flip, I just need to know the exact name of the switch. :sgarrity, would you mind commenting here with that info?

Let's used 'mwc-2015-preview' as the waffle switch.

This page (/mwc) is currently redirected to another page via global.conf https://github.com/mozilla/bedrock/blob/master/etc/httpd/global.conf#L395

Assuming we can't/shouldn't use waffle switches in global.conf, does the following make sense?

1. remove the existing global.conf redirect
2. use firefox/urls.py to point /mwc at the previous redirect target for now
3. when the waffle switch is flipped, firefox/urls.py updates /mwc to point to the new template

Josh, does that make sense? If so, how would I implement that in urls.py? I see other cases with the decorators=waffle_switch() technique, but in this case, I need to swap the template in the page() function, not just turn it on. Thanks.

After reading through the thread on Bug 1129760, it sounds like there is really no traffic to /mwc right now anyhow. So, we can remove the existing redirect and just use a normal waffle_switch decorator. I'll set that up.

I ran the following commands on the bedrock admin node:

export SWITCH=mwc-2015-preview
export DIR=/data/bedrock-stage/www/www.allizom.org-django/bedrock
cd $DIR && ./manage.py switch $SWITCH on --create
export DIR=/data/bedrock/www/www.mozilla.org-django/bedrock
echo "cd $DIR && ./manage.py switch $SWITCH on --create" | at 01:00 2015-02-23

The mwc preview should be live immediately when we merge and push to stage, and should go live on prod at 1 AM PST (server time), or 9 AM UTC. Obviously this will depend on us merging and pushing the code that this switch activates before then :).
