Created attachment 277976 [details] [diff] [review] hardcode minVersion in browser-mail/locales/generic/install.rdf On the stable branch, we should hardcode the minVersion of language packs, it makes using the branch for agile development of new localizations much more attractive. Plus, it's a dead simple and safe thing to do, as we know the minVersion anyway. For Firefox, I'm using 188.8.131.52 due to the change in the migration wizard, which should be good enough, for Thunderbird, I'm using 2.0 proper. Without this fix, the minVersion gets set to 184.108.40.206pre, which makes it untestable on the latest release bits. That's just not right. This patch is branch only. Requesting review from Benjamin for l10n repack foo, CCing mconnor and mscott to give them a chance to veto this from a application point of view.
Comment on attachment 277976 [details] [diff] [review] hardcode minVersion in browser-mail/locales/generic/install.rdf Requesting branch approval. This is only affecting language packs generated from the stable branch, and sets the minVersion to something that's reasonable. If we'd have to break compat down the 2.0.0.x stream, we'll adjust these again.

Landed on branch.
I guess there is no way to verify this on the branch, right?
The .8pre language packs on http://l10n.mozilla.org/~buildslave/incubator/ work on stable releases, so this is verified.
