Allow non-RelEng folk to enable/disable snippets and move/copy them between channels. During release the snippets (what's live and where) are a huge black box. It would be nice for me to not have to bug RelEng for the simple case of viewing snippet status and the typical betattest -> beta -> releasetest -> release push dance. A web UI ontop of snippet management would do nicely. This could be one step away from automation that moves them for me based on other systems.
Don't disagree that this would be nice, but we don't even have this for releng yet (bug 594930).

Viewing snippet status seems low-risk (could be totally read-only) and could probably be done relatively soon. If that is useful, it might make sense to explicitly tackle that first. Christian what do you think?
A simple tool to report on where snippets are pointing would be a big help here, instead of poking around at individual files.
Yes, just a viewing tool would be super useful. The ability to shuffle them around on channels is an added bonus :-)
I intend to make this possible with the initial admin interface of Balrog.

The UI allows for this now, the rest is just policy/training. Alex, Lukas - I'd love to get you (and Bhavana/Preeti if appropriate) to play around with the dev interface a bit to get comfortable with it whenever you're ready. Once you get access you'll be able to do Aurora disabling/enabling on your own!

bug 933944 describes a race condition that can make bad things happen. I'd like to fix that before we do this...

Massimo is working on improving the rules page to be much more user friendly. I think we should wait for that before doing this too.

I'm unassigning this from myself because it's going to be awhile. We need Balrog in production for betas/releases first, and we probably want to make specific actions available via ship it, which depends on bug 886522

I believe this is doable in Balrog now.
