We are planning to remove support for Mac OS X 10.5 in Firefox 17. We shouldn't update any users on Mac OS X 10.5 to Firefox 17.

Per http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darwin_%28operating_system%29#Release_history this means blocking 'Darwin 9.*'

Hmm. Isn't Firefox 17 going to be the next ESR? Won't it make more sense to remove support *after* 17? Also I don't remember any official conclusion to the discussion in mozilla.dev.planning on this particular topic.

There's a big thread about this in the newsgroups. 
 https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!topic/mozilla.dev.platform/aT7hy7YDdqA

Please have a read of that and follow up there.

Worked as expected in blocking a faked update to FF17.0a1 to a 10.5.8 machine.

$ cvs tag AUS2_PRODUCTION config-dist.php 
W config-dist.php : AUS2_PRODUCTION already exists on version 1.217 : NOT MOVING tag to version 1.218
$ cvs tag -F AUS2_PRODUCTION config-dist.php 
T config-dist.php

If updates are disabled for Mac OS X 10.5 users now I'll go ahead and land the patch that will make the build not run on Mac OS X 10.5. Is this the case?

Working fine if I adjust requests:

10.6.8 gets an update to 17.0a1:
https://aus3.mozilla.org/update/3/Firefox/16.0a1/20120716042007/Darwin_x86_64-gcc3-u-i386-x86_64/en-US/nightly/Darwin%2010.8.0/default/default/update.xml?force=1

10.5.8 doesn't:
https://aus3.mozilla.org/update/3/Firefox/16.0a1/20120716042007/Darwin_x86_64-gcc3-u-i386-x86_64/en-US/nightly/Darwin%209.8.0/default/default/update.xml?force=1
