The GEOLOCATION_REQUEST_GRANTED probe was renewed in Bug #1494496 to support targeting for a survey project that I originally expected to launch in November. Thanks to the usual vagaries of IRBs, holidays, and other priorities, we haven't launched yet, and the probe expiry is configured to stop collecting in 65. To mitigate the risk of failing to deploy the survey before the targeting probe expires, I'd like to bump the probe expiration out another couple of releases and uplift to beta.

I think we're actually ready to launch now so I'm confident another 12 weeks will be more than enough time and we won't have to repeat this exercise again.

I expect the data review in Bug #1494496 provides coverage for this change.

In the future, you can just request approval directly on the Phabricator attachment instead of creating a new one :)
