Description David Tenser [:djst] 2010-02-25 17:54:03 PST
We want to conduct an A/B test to see which of the following two articles is best for our users:

The test should ONLY be for EU ballot builds using the en-GB locale. This translates to this incoming URL:

We'd like this test to start asap and run for as many days needed to see which one is giving us the lowest bounce rate. We'll file another bug when it's time to close the A/B test (by undoing this bug).

Just for the record, Jeremy did a similar A/B test implementation in bug 484283, if that's helpful info.

oremj, would it be better to move sumo to zeus and do this?  how quickly can that get done?
Comment 5 Jeremy Orem [:oremj] 2010-02-26 10:55:01 PST
There is already a bug to move SUMO to zeus and I think that should be done first. Can this wait until next Tuesday?
Comment 6 David Tenser [:djst] 2010-02-26 11:01:24 PST
Yes it can. Thanks.
Comment 7 Jeremy Orem [:oremj] 2010-03-05 10:53:03 PST
All set. Implemented as explained in comment 2.
