Bootstrap's "Please choose the version of Firefox you want to build" prompt has so much text, its list of options are scrolled offscreen
Summary: Bootstrap's "Please choose the version of Firefox you want to build" prompt has too much text to show you the options → Bootstrap's "Please choose the version of Firefox you want to build" prompt has so much text, its list of options are scrolled offscreen
Here's a screenshot of approximately what this prompt looks like, for people running the bootstrap script on a Mac. (I took the screenshot on my Linux machine, but the terminal in my screenshot is the same size as the default terminal size on Mac, at least on intern Jonathan Chan's brand new Mac machine.)

Looks like this text was added in bug 1221200, mentored by nalexander. nalexander, see the attached screenshot for the problem here. (1/2/3 choice-listing is pushed offscreen by all the text.) Could you perhaps take this, or suggest an appropriate rewriting/reordering of this prompt which someone else could implement?

I think we should move the note up, so that the choices and the prompt are co-located. We might also move the note into the artifacts page, or otherwise separate this. Alternately, we use $PAGER to display some of the "getting started" stuff. I'm not going to get to this; redirecting to chmanchester.

Nick's suggestion sounds reasonable. The relevant text is in python/mozboot/mozboot/bootstrap.py
