To be clear, bug 689666's mozconfig change has landed in buildbot-configs and merged to the production branch.  Nothing further needs to be done there for 8.0.x; it's marked as a blocker for tracking purposes and still open since it requires work for Firefox/Fennec 9.0.

If it's confusing, we can remove it from the blocking bug list.
per 8.0.1 meeting just now:

* we're only taking bug#699134 and bug#700835 for the 8.0.1 release. No ridealongs. I've updated the depbug list to match this reality. Revised ETA for "go to build" is approx 5-6pm PDT today.

* we will *not* be shipping a Fennec8.0.1 on android. Tweaking summary to match.

* For updates, like we did in 5.0.1, we want to limit who can update to where. Part of the problem is the not-yet-confirmed cause of the crash, and concern that exposing non-crashing 8.0 users to an 8.0.1 update might cause them to start crashing?!!

Therefore, when we ship 8.0.1,  the proposal is that users see the
1a) users on 4.0 - 7.0.1 should get updates to 8.0.1
1b) users who want to download Firefox should find 8.0.1 on

2a) users on 8.0 mac should get idletime/manual check-for-updates to 8.0.1
2b) users on 8.0 win32/linux should not get idle-time updates to 8.0.1.
For mechanical reasons, this also means that users on 8.0 win32/linux
cannot do manual check-for-updates to 8.0.1

Later, when we ship FF9.0:
3a) users on 8.0.1 would get partial updates from 8.0.1 -> 9.0
3b) users on 8.0 would get complete updates from 8.0 -> 9.0

This mostly backs out the changes the automation made, since we have partial updates from 7.0.1 (all), and makes sure we test partials from 7.0.1 and 8.0 on mac.

probably the wrong place to be asking this but is firefox 8.0.1 going to be for windows too? or is this a mac only release?
Please see comment #3.

I did read comment #3. I am slightly confused though. So there are no bug fixes or benefits in upgrading if your on windows?
The logic is
* if you're on mac you need the java fix, so updates to 8.0.1 will be offered
* if you're Windows with 8.0 and
 * you don't have old Roboform then 8.0 works, and updating to 8.0.1 has no benefit to you. Of course the next release will be offered
 * you have old Roboform then your Firefox is broken, and you'll need to go get 8.0.1 from and/or update Roboform
* if you're Linux then there is no benefit in 8.0 -> 8.0.1, you'll just get the next release when it comes along

This is essentially the same patch as attachment 574719 [details] [diff] [review], only with some s/build1/build2/ and leaving in '7.0 macosx64 - full check' which was removed by mistake.

Unthrottled updates for all releases after 8.0.1 is published.

A (slow moving) fork was stuck in it.
