Will there be a replacement for the uninstall survey? These are also present on the branches so if this is going to be retired quickly we'll need to backport the removals to 3.5 and 3.6. Also, existing installers that don't have the removal will go to a 404 when survey.mozilla.com is retired unless it is redirected.

What is the time frame for this?
Component: General → Installer
QA Contact: general → installer
As far as I am aware there will not be a replacement for the uninstall survey, although I am not positive.  cc'ing Blake to see if he might know.

If we take down survey.mozilla.com, the plan is to redirect all website traffic to a blog post saying that the site is no longer in use, eg:
http://blog.mozilla.com/website-archive/2010/12/08/mozilla-uninstall-survey/

This blog post will also contain a link to the stats that have been collected.

What are the access points in 1.9.1 and 1.9.2 for this? I believe they are only on Windows during the uninstall. Is that correct?
