STR: 1. Add add-on to AMO, not pre-release, get it to appear in public. 2. Add update to AMO, set pre-release flag because it is a beta of a fancy new version. You don't want everyone to be updated, just want it out there so people can test it. AR: Update gets auto-nominated for public ER: Update stays where it is, because it has the pre-release flag set, or possibly that the author gets asked whether they want to push the update or not.
I'm actually confused as to what the pre-release flag is specifically for. It appears to apply to the add-on as a whole instead of the different versions of that add-on. Tagging an add-on, that already has publicly released versions, as pre-release doesn't really make any sense in that context. It would probably be better if the pre-release flag was independently applied to versions of an add-on instead of the add-on itself. That way a new version could be tagged as pre-release at upload time without effecting existing versions.
Add-ons that are flagged as pre-release cannot be nominated for public in AMO 3.5.

(In reply to comment #2) > Add-ons that are flagged as pre-release cannot be nominated for public in AMO > 3.5. Fligtar: I'm confused by your sentence. Do you mean add-on *updates* that are flagged as pre-release? Because that is what the bug was about originally, assuming I'm reading it all correctly. Ciao!
I am also still confused. What happens if an author sets the pre-release flag for an add-on that has already been nominated for public and accepted?
Sorry, I misinterpreted this bug. The pre-release flag is set for the add-on, not a specific version or file. This is made more obvious in the 3.5 revamp, but has always been the case. An add-on that is marked as pre-release cannot be nominated for public. I'm pretty sure the ability to have beta/development versions of extensions that are not public is filed as another bug that I can't find at the moment.
