We received email that three of our addons were not marked as 5.0 compatible. When I then went to check them and tried to download them, all three of them came up as 404s. http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/addons/11160/nbas_cleveland_cavaliers_official_basketball_boom-2.0.1-fx.xpi http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/addons/13703/halloween_theme_and_extension_w_surf_canyon_search_assistant-2.0.1-fx.xpi http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/addons/12518/nfls_indianapolis_colts_official_football_boom-2.0.1-fx.xpi
I suspect they've ended up in guarded-addons. -> jbalogh to investigate and fix
For the record, in the emails we got about these not being Firefox 5 compatible, we received links that didn't work as well: https://addons.mozilla.org/developers/addon/halloween-theme-and-extension-/validation-result/25250 https://addons.mozilla.org/developers/addon/nbas-cleveland-cavaliers-offic/validation-result/25493 https://addons.mozilla.org/developers/addon/nfls-indianapolis-colts-offici/validation-result/25500
We can't be the only people this happened to. Any updates on this? These are two of our most popular addons.
2 : from addons.models import Addon 3 : a = Addon.objects.get(id=11160) 4 : a.current_version.all_files 5 : a.current_version 6 : f = a.current_version.all_files 7 : f.unhide_disabled_file() 8 : f.copy_to_mirror() 9 : a = Addon.objects.get(id=13703) 10: a.current_version 11: f = a.current_version.all_files 12: f.unhide_disabled_file() 13: f.copy_to_mirror() 14: a = Addon.objects.get(id=12518) 15: f = a.current_version.all_files 16: f.unhide_disabled_file() 17: f.copy_to_mirror() 18: _ip.magic("hist ")
OK, they're back. So, why did they disappear? And why can't I view the validation results from the 4.0->5.0 thing?
I still don't see any answers to my question. And this comment: > Files are getting stuck in /guarded-addons for some reason Doesn't help. Did these files get stuck in guarded because of the 4.0->5.0 version bump? Why don't the validation links work? Why are you working around the problem instead of figuring out why it broke?
We've been seeing add-ons stuck in /guarded-addons for the past few weeks. We haven't determined a cause or a pattern but it doesn't have to do with the 4.0->5.0 version bump. If the validator wasn't expecting to find your add-ons in /guarded-addons when it ran, the links will be broken. The patch above fixes the problem and adds additional logging so we can determine what is causing it. As I mentioned, we haven't seen a pattern yet. Thanks for the fix, jbalogh.
Interesting. So it was a chicken and egg problem. I thought they were not available because of the version bump. But it turns out they failed to get the version bump because they weren't available. Doh! Thanks for the explanation.
