Description :Ehsan Akhgari 2011-12-01 16:00:25 PST
Today we decided that once bug 481815 lands, it would be a good idea to push more nightlies so that people get more updates.  So we want to increase the frequency of the update checks on the nightly channel temporarily when that work lands in order to get people to update more often.

This patch increases the frequency of the update checks to 1 hour, and it's also going to increase the frequency of the nag screen to an hour as well, in the hopes that people will actually upgrade more often.

Are they/you planning on spinning up more nightly's, or just hammer the update server for 1 update/day ?

We are planning on serving up additional nightly builds so we get more testing of bug 481815.
