... and not some RC

We currently trigger the Spark promo banner based on the official branding, which is not good enough for distinguishing between RC and GA. Need a solution.

RC will become GA without respin, so afaik the only way to change this is to have it be web-based.
Repacking Android would mean either:

a) going through the ugliness we went through for beta 3? of manually bumping the Android market manifest file, which is helpfully binary,

b) not releasing RC on Android market

I don't think either solution is a good solution.

What's the downside of including this in RC?

This is not what I heard at the last delivery meeting. We need some form of a "bump" to get the Market to see it as a change.

Current state:
* Marketing and WebDev will work to get a "coming soon" landing page in place for Spark which will be in effect until Spark goes live with GA
* We can update the Market text content from RC text to GA text without needing an application package bump. Those users who have installed RC1 will be using GA and not nee to update, assuming RC1 becomes GA.

OK, just sent a note to the agency and webdev. Stay tuned. Mark, can we change the look and feel of this button or will it have to remain untouched from RC to Final?

Replied in email too: We can't really change the look of the button. If we knew how to change the look, we could just hide it instead.
No longer clocking and no code changes required. This will be handled by a server side landing page for RC.

Caitlin - is there a webdev bug for this?
