Description

2 years ago
As soon as the boilerplate text is in place, I'd like to redirect ask.mozilla.org from it's current target to this forum on the Mozilla community discourse forum:

https://discourse.mozilla-community.org/c/firefox-development

After that we can discontinue the askbot instance and shut that down, and there will be much rejoicing. 

This is dependent on some boilerplate for discourse and a blog post being put up.  As a first step, I'd like to know how long this will take and how far ahead you'll need to plan; I suspect that's "not much" and "not much" respectively, which would be good. Once I know, I'll get that copy up and we can turn both keys at the same time, or however that works.

* Added SSL pin to our zeus load balancer
* Pointed ask.mozilla.org to > static.external.zlb.scl3.mozilla.com (Zeus load balancer)
* Which then points to our static redirect cluter:
* added following redirect:
<VirtualHost *:80 *:81>
  ServerName ask.mozilla.org
  RewriteEngine On
  RewriteRule ^/.*$ https://discourse.mozilla-community.org/c/firefox-development/? [R=307]
</VirtualHost>
