Like bug 339351, we need to create:

www.mozilla.org/projects/bonecho/index-2.0b1.html
www.mozilla.org/projects/bonecho/releases/2.0b1.html

As an added bonus, we need to create a download page that uses the same sort of download.js script from mozilla.com to point to localized builds on bouncer (see bug 344129).

Note: the graphics and page titles should now call it "Firefox 2 Beta 1" instead of "Bon Echo Beta 1" since we've enabled official branding. 

Open Question: 

- should these pages be on mozilla.com (pkim/cbeard to weigh in here, my opinion is "no", since it's not really a release, it's still an expression of the project to date)

yes, let's continue to post release notes and first run pages for the development milestones on mozilla.org
Added a dep on 344156 which has some redirect magic 'cause we used -enable-official-branding
Depends on: 344129, 344156
Depends on: 344128
Steven: we're going to need some new graphics for these pages:

1. /projects/bonecho/index-b1.html needs a firefox-icon.png to replace deerpark-icon.png -- is this already available somewhere?

2. /projects/bonecho/releases/2.0b1.html needs a releasenotes-bonecho-beta1.png that includes the branded firefox icon and the text "Firefox 2 beta 1"

Please deliver ASAP, kiss kiss!

Created attachment 228908 [details] [diff] [review]
release notes for /projects/bonecho/releases/2.0b1.html 

this should carry over the r=cbeard; changes were:

 - caught a couple of bad links to wrong ftp site dir (for contributed builds)
 - added release notes for bug 355757, bug 337897, bug 343182, and bug 344312

Ready to check this in now.

firefox 2 beta 1 start page for /projects/bonecho/index-2.0b1.html

again, carries over r=cbeard since the content changes are the same as in the previous bug, I just did some link target changing and s/Bon Echo Alpha 3/Firefox 2 Beta 1/ throughout.
Still to do:

 - create and check in the new graphics
 - update /projects/bonecho/index.html to redirect to index-2.0b1.html if the user is using beta 1, or to the devnews post if the user is using an earlier version
 - fix bug 344156
 - think about creating a proper "Get the Firefox 2 Beta" page which would use download.js (see bug 344129)

I've just used the old deerpark image for now.

I did not modify that file yet, as I'm not sure what the devnews post URL will be.

Still waiting on what URLs exactly need to be redirected.

I'll look into this one in a bit.


Jesse will probably do his usual http://www.squarefree.com/burningedge/releases/2.0b1.html page, I guess, so CC'ing.

Yeah, as I was going through the file, "firefox-2-beta1.tar.gz" looked a tad odd.
Status: NEW → ASSIGNED
index-2.0b1.html has some text that states "Note:The Firefox 2 Beta 1 build you are using is NOT A FINAL OR PRE-RELEASE VERSION of Firefox, it has been made available for testing purposes only, with no end-user support.". Should that be changed to say something else, as with Firefox 2 Beta 1, branding is official and would be considered "pre-release" (I guess?).

Names are:

Linux: firefox-2.0b1.tar.gz
Mac: Firefox 2.0 Beta 1.dmg
Win32: Firefox Setup 2.0 Beta 1.exe

These are the final names as they appear on the ftp site now; the bits are on their way out to the mirrors so if we want to change the names to something else, I hope we can wait until b2.

These names were what the build scripts generated, based upon the version information.

The only one that looks a bit funky is Win32. It's similar to what's used for regular releases, and the 1.5b2 release, but 1.5b1 was done differently (likely because it was just en-US, not all the locales).

The release scripts handle all the renaming, so if we want to change it, let's file a bug to make the scripts do the right thing. :-/
I've checked in some graphics for the start page and the release notes. Let me know if there's any trouble with them. Might take a few minutes to get to the live servers.

Yeah, I was wondering that last night at 2am, and decided to leave it, thinking "pre-release" meant "RC". Seems redundant either way, so let's just remove the "PRE-RELEASE" portion. Everything else in that statement is true, though.
Added a relnote for bug 344121:

Just for the sake of reference, reed's now doing this in bug 344375 :)
