When the bump lands [1] on default it triggers a bunch of dependent builds [2]

The commit message looks like this:
"Automated checkin: version bump for firefox 3.6.26 release. CLOSED TREE a=release"

Adding DONTBUILD should do the trick to prevent this misuse of resources.

This sounds like a good intern bug :)

Thats because on mozilla-beta we don't do a change on |default| we relbranch and do our (fake) version update on that. 3.6.x has the unique (now) situation of needing to change the default version #
We should just add DONTBUILD to the commit message.

I don't think there's any reason that these should ever be non-DONTBUILD.

add DONTBUILD to tag and bump commits

The logic looks good, but the patch needs to be refreshed. The current one failed to apply.
