Provide updates for 3.6b1 build1 and build2


(Release Engineering :: General, defect, P3)



(Not tracked)



(Reporter: nthomas, Assigned: nthomas)



Some rough user numbers from AUS for 3.6b1: 
* 35k users on build1
* 4k on build2
* 10k on build3
Presumably the first two groups came from direct downloads from ftp.m.o, but only the build3 users get offered the latest 3.6 build (yay patcher). 

We can fill this in the traditional way (generating snippets pointing to 3.6b4/5), but I'm also wondering if we can symlink to victory. eg: in /opt/aus2/incoming/3/Firefox/3.6b1
 WINNT_x86-msvc/20091014103305 --> WINNT_x86-msvc/20091029171059
 WINNT_x86-msvc/20091019095728 --> WINNT_x86-msvc/20091029171059
That'd be a bit of a departure so we'd have to think about future maintenance implications but it has the advantage of always pointing to the latest 3.6 build for stragglers (rather than updating to 3.6b1 -> 3.6b4 -> 3.6.latest).
Some other notes I meant to make
* blocklist numbers are a bit higher (~55K total for 3.6b1)
* we haven't had multiple builds for other 3.6 releases
Is this still an issue? If so, should it block FF3.6 release?

I don't think it should block. We have a number of ways that we can get these users up-to-date, whether it's via symlinks or generating the actual updates to 3.6 final, and none of them strictly have to happen before the release goes out the door.

We didn't think up any disadvantages to symlinking so going ahead with that:
