We need to ensure we're not packaging channel-prefs.js in MAR complete and partial patches. If we package it, then any changes to the build systems' --enable-update-channel will be sent to nightly testers and then to beta users when we switch back to the nightly channel for nightlies.
No, I misspoke. It will not be sent to beta users because AUS2 will not be sending them updates. But packaging this file will inadvertently place nightly users on the beta channel when we make the switch which we don't want to do.
From IRC, Ben and I discussed appending: ! -name "channel-prefs.js" to the find commands at: http://lxr.mozilla.org/mozilla/source/tools/update-packaging/make_full_update.sh#67 http://lxr.mozilla.org/mozilla/source/tools/update-packaging/make_incremental_update.sh#76 http://lxr.mozilla.org/mozilla/source/tools/update-packaging/make_incremental_update.sh#78 That should cause the channel-prefs.js file to be excluded from the list of packaged files.
I tested the find command in isolation with the modification chase mentions and it seems to correctly exclude the specified file from the list.
