contrib directory is not created in either nightly or releases.
Ginn, fwiw I'm not a Firefox releng guy so they could certainly tell me I'm wrong here.

But I don't think the lack of a contrib directory (or the creation of one) played into their plans with beta 1, since it was not a "real" beta, but more akin to an alpha build created to test the channel-switcher feature in Firefox 5/6.

There was a need to test that feature prior to Firefox 5 moving to the new beta tree, and that is why they created it. There will be a new beta within the next few days, which I would expect to have a contrib dir like normal.
lsblakk could you please have a look on why the signing scripts did not create the contrib directory?

What happened that they were not created?
just had to do the contrib dirs manually - used the Makefile but it needed $(WORKDIR) in a couple of places so that I could make it work

Not being able to use autosign because of only doing en-US builds - and there's not a section in the old signing notes for creating contrib dirs when you sign manually (not that I hit anyway).
Thanks! I had the feeling that it had to do with creating en-US only release.
Good to know.

add $(WORKDIR) to a couple of make targets in autosign makefile

Looks good.
