Description

2 years ago
When devedition builds were created, they superceded the devedition builds.

The documentation needs to be updated to reflect this here

https://wiki.mozilla.org/Add-ons/Extension_Signing#Unbranded_Builds

See bug 1390751 and bug 1391283.  

The devedition beta builds are here
https://tools.taskcluster.net/index/gecko.v2.mozilla-beta.latest.devedition

On release, the addon-devel builds are still there,  Upon the next uplift when they will be removed and replaced with devedition.

Will these builds auto-update, or will they be functionally equivalent to the unbranded builds that allow signing overrides for beta and release?

They auto update to new dev-edition builds.  In devedition about:config the xpinstall.signatures.required can be toggled to False to test unsigned addons.

So to clarify as requested by kev via a conversation with catlee, we won't remove the addon-devel builds on release, they will remain there since the devedition builds are only available on m-b.  So the documentation can still still reference them for m-r.
