Description

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1353924 +++

This is the SeaMonkey version of bug 1353821, whatever needs to be done specifically for SeaMonkey. Probably a lot will be taken care of in Thunderbird bug 1353924.

Fallen's task list in the other bug:
* Update aurora users to beta like in bug 1353825
* Remove aurora builds from buildbot configs and other build code
* Clean up ftp
* Make sure localization dashboard works as expected
* Update websites
* Update various services like dxr, [treeherder] to remove aurora

Not really, since our infra and buildbot stuff are not the same as TB's,
we need to do a bunch of things.  

On the top of my head:

1) The first thing would be to update our buildbot-config files.
2) Change our updates server to not serve aurora and move them to c-b.
  (on balrog).  Not entirely sure if there's anything to do (or worth
  doing) on aus2.
3) Possible website changes.

Looked at the buildbot files which include references to aurora over the weekend. There are a few but possible not all relevant (calendar etc...).

Switching users to beta is imho not necessary. There are at least 2 bugs stating that automatic updates are broken. Something to look at after the balrog move imho.

What about l10n? With l10n builds broken I don't see a (new) problem here but is anything linked to aurora?

2 code references for aurora and maybe a few others where a2 is explicitly checked in the version. Didn√Ąt fand any and shouldn't be a problem. Can be taken care of after the tree is dead.

Maybe I am misunderstanding this, but you need to move aurora users somewhere. You don't want to leave them in a dead end.

Unfortunately they are already there and need to update manually. Automatic updates are broken for Nightly and Aurora. ewong is moving SeaMonkey to balrog and that is one of the things to fix afterwards. So testers aon the chanlle know that they need to install a full package.

Since 2.52 (Gecko 55) is on trunk, it will stay there for the next
two iterations.  Then it hits Beta.

So once 2.52 hits beta, none of the version after it will hit aurora,
so we can then remove mentions of comm-aurora.

>> +if BRANCHES['comm-aurora']['gecko_version'] < 55:

Do we really need this any longer? I would just delete aurora everything on the buildbot. Its dead Jim and will stay at 54/2.51 forever.

my mistake.  hadn't realized that there was a merge and that 2.51 is already
on beta.

Website patch. I changed the approval text to reflect reality but didn't put IanN as the current sole approver directly in it :)

What web page would you get after this patch if you are on the alpha channel?

The patch shouldn't change anything here. The redirect is unmodified and should still redirect to http://www.seamonkey-project.org/dev/get-involved

> RedirectMatch temp ^/releases/seamonkey(?![12]\.[01]a).*a[12]/ http://www.seamonkey-project.org/dev/get-involved

Aas for as I know the removed aurora page is not used as a starting page anywhere in SeaMonkey.

I overlooked to remove a variable in the website patch. According to a post in todays irc log it causes problems with Adblock Plus so I did a patch with rs.
