Description

3 years ago
In the old S3 system we had symlinks from 
  firefox/nightly/2015-10-<blah>
to 
  firefox/nightly/2015/10/2015-10-<blah>
to make it easier to find the last 30 days of nightly builds. This was done in post_upload so it applies to all products using it, eg firefox, thunderbird, not mobile.

The new post_upload doesn't do this. We may be able to do this with 0-byte keys that redirect (to avoid data duplication), and auto-expire. Need to decide if that's a request we should make or if deprecation is an option.

To clarify on point, mobile does use post_upload, it just goes down a different code path.
Summary: help symlinks no longer present for nightlies → helper symlinks no longer present for nightlies
personally, I always found those cluttered up the top level directory. they're also not stable urls, given they get removed after 30 days.

+0 for deprecating them.

Since we migrated on the 20th there's been no mob with pitch forks, so deprecation is the way to go. I've removed the old links.
