We should bump the milestone.txt on mozilla-central asap.

We already have at least one project branch merged in (build-system) and in order for other applications (like SeaMonkey/Thunderbird to be able to differentiate the two) we need this bumped.

The value should be 2.2a1pre for now, as Fennec took 2.1*.

LegNeato was ok with this and said he would handle landing the bump.
John suggested the version number on dev-planning and we are going with it to keep our options open in the future if we need to change it again (as well as keep options open wrt fennec / releases/mozilla-2.1...

It pains me to get review on this but there may be some gremlins lurking I am not aware of...

Bump version

You need to change js/src/config/milestone.txt and browser/config/version.txt too.

milestone bump only.

Again, this is total rubberstamping, but if this is the plan for the moment lets roll with it.

Bah, this feels like a cop-out. a=LegNeato. Callek, you landing or need me to?
To summarize from irc w/callek:

0) SeaMonkey buildbots are setup to build from mozilla-central and also releases/mozilla-2.0 (including nightlies). SeaMonkey (comm-central) automation uses the value in milestone.txt to determine which mozilla-* repo we have fetched.

1) SeaMonkey needs this change urgently to 
* unbreak SeaMonkey builds as result of build-system landing into m-c this evening, which caused a much wider divergence between m-c and m-2.0.
* to unblock work on a SeaMonkey release

2) Backing out the build-system change was one possible solution, and would likely also fix Thunderbird burning. However, backing these build-system changes out is harder work, so we dropped that idea.

3) Changing the two milestone.txt files to anything *except* 2.0 will suffice for SeaMonkey, because they'll think m-c is m-c and keep tracking mozilla-2.0 as 2.0. Specifically, Callek does not need version.txt changed. 

4)  Historically, SeaMonkey had more time to do this in the leadup to a  Firefox release, because Mozilla would branch earlier. However, this  specific Firefox4.0 release branched very late, just at RC, so SeaMonkey had little notice. 

5) Firefox is still figuring out where/how nightly users should be shared across the various existing moz-2.0/moz-2.1/m-c branches. We can change the two milestone.txt files without restricting our options. However, increasing the app version will limit choices later, so until a final decision is made, we decided to not change app version at this time. 

We note that some more observant users might be confused by a Firefox < 4.0final but a Gecko newer >4.0final, and there is the slight chance of some web-devs doing UA sniffing who might see that. However, as this is only short term, and it unblocks SeaMonkey and Thunderbird, it seems worth the tradeoff.

Thanks to Callek for taking the time to work through the details with me (I'm slow, tired after a long busy day), and for posting+landing new patch which only changes the two milestone.txt files.

Actually did before I noticed your comment here, used a=joduinn

dupe ? bug 636190
No, not a dupe, we only bumped the Gecko milestone here, that bug is also for Firefox itself. And we may want a higher Gecko milestone bump there than 2.2a1pre
