Description

6 years ago
I don't think the traffic on xulrunner/releases can come close justifying it's place on the mirrors, let alone using up the 21G of room, in a rapid release world where the content is turning over quickly and breathing room is a useful thing to have. 

To do:
* modify Gecko SDK page to point to ftp://ftp.mozilla.org instead of http://releases.mozilla.org
* modify the mozilla-releases or mozilla-prereleases modules to not carry xulrunner/releases any more
* remove redirect from http://ftp.m.o/pub/mozilla.org/xulrunner/releases to http://releases.mozilla.org/ ...  (bug 705208)
* update Gecko SDK page to point http://ftp.mozilla.org

To clarify, RelEng will still be copying new releases into xulrunner/releases, but the mirrors won't be carrying those files any more.
Summary: Stop pushing xulrunner/releases to the mirrors → Stop carrying xulrunner/releases on the mirrors
Product: mozilla.org → Release Engineering
