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.
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:

We can't be the only people this happened to.

Any updates on this? These are two of our most popular addons.

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.


Thanks for the explanation.
