Mac version of bug 31821.
Putting on [nsbeta2+][5/16] radar. This is a feature MUST complete work by 05/16 or we may pull this feature for PR2.
*** Bug 32572 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Since we are going for blind deletion rather than surgical upgrade this is not going to happen in PR2. Moving to M18.
Target Milestone: M16 → M20
Agreed. Missed Beta2 train.
Whiteboard: [nsbeta2+][5/16] → [nsbeta2-]
updating mac mozilla installer QA contact to me
QA Contact: gbush → asa
Do we intend to do this by FCS or should we future+helpwanted, or should we assign this to someone to write a spec to describe what moz should do?
Netscape doesn't intend to do this for the Netscape 6 RTM. If mozilla's RTM is later this may happen. Or it may happen for the next release of Netscape 6 which implies that it'll have to happen for mozilla first.
Changing obsolete M20+ milestones to closest equivalent, "Future"

Argh -- how did this get minused? We will have upgrade nightmares if we allow people to skip updating old components. Or is the Mac still "nuke from orbit"?
Keywords: nsbeta1- → nsbeta1+
The Mac is still nuke from orbit.
Moving back to nsbate1- (this got triaged early on) since we have a strategy in place and don't have the cycles. Added helpwanted keyword.
Keywords: nsbeta1+ → helpwanted, nsbeta1-
Syd, This looks like 'surgical upgrade' bug- not sure if this can be done in MachV - but am changing assignment and myself to QA contact so we can monitor

Modifying summary so we don't keep losing these old dupes. From bug 102189: Right now the Mac installer blows away everything before installing. Need to emulate the Windows installer behavior of selectively removing obsolete files. Note: Bug #102177 parallels this bug for Linux. Both of these bugs are important to nseneterprise because it is very important that Time Warner be able to upgrade seemlessly from 6.2 to 6.3. Greg indicates that Mac support is much more important than linux in this regard.
Severity: enhancement → normal
No longer depends on: 37348
Summary: [feature] Handle already-installed components on upgrade → [mac] Handle old components on upgrade ("surgical upgrade")
