I suggest we replace both occurrences of "opting out of Automatic Updates from the Add-ons Manager" with "following <a href="http://blog.mozilla.com/addons/how-to-opt-out-of-add-on-metadata-updates/">these instructions</a>"

Alex, what's the urgency level on this?
I think we should update the policy as soon as is feasibly possible. I like the idea of including a link to the blog post on how people can turn it off, using Justin's suggested text above. In terms of process, in addition to posting the new, updated policy, we need to keep the current one as a "prior version." What I'm not sure of is how material this change is, such that we need to post the change to our newsgroup and mailing list. Can you guys advise me on how significant this change is?
We've been announcing the opt out information on the Add-ons Blog, first here: http://blog.mozilla.com/addons/2011/02/10/add-on-metadata-start-up-time/ then here: http://blog.mozilla.com/addons/2011/02/23/correction-regarding-opting-out-of-add-on-metadata-pings/ I was planning to make the third post of the change once the policy had been updated. I don't think additional posts are necessary but that's up to you.
I'm currently at the webdev offsite so I can't really take this. A summary of the changes required would be nice. I'll let James take care of this one.
Perhaps we should close this bug since I added this change to bug 664845. Any objections?
