disable Android release updates

Assuming that we're sticking with apks and not switching to MARs any time soon, we need some sort of automation for the manipulation and movement of snippets on AUS2.

We're softlinking our way to success right now.

We should check on the status of Android updates -> MARs before putting significant effort into this.
Per Mark Finkle, we're letting the Market do Android release updates (betas, releases).

This bug now tracks the relevant config changes: mozconfig, turn off Android release snippet generation/pushing, update docs.

untested patch

I'm just toggling this off, not tearing out any code.
Do you have a preference about this?

same, but with staging + testing

Looks fine without drilling really deep into the code.

>diff --git a/mozilla2/mobile/android/mobile-browser/release/mozconfig b/mozilla2/mobile/android/mobile-browser/release/mozconfig
>-ac_add_options --enable-updater
>-ac_add_options --enable-update-channel=beta
>+#ac_add_options --enable-updater
>+#ac_add_options --enable-update-channel=beta

Bug 619801 tried to do this too, but the mozconfig would have over-ridden that. Probably worth dropping a comment over there if that's not already known.

This tripped up FF4.0beta5 because of no feedback button, caused by no beta channel, caused by this bugfix. 

Discussion in mobile meeting continues on what is exact wanted behavior. Reopening, and cc-ing people who had opinions in meeting.

We may want to verify that Socorro and metrics aren't dependent on the update channel being set before re-landing.

iirc KaiRo said before that socorro is entirely dependent on update-channel being set.
Socorro is at least fully dependent on the channel being set in the expected way in crash reports. For beta, it *has* to be "beta", for release, we accept "release-*" and "default".
