I'm a bit confused about how bug 731299 is useful given that metrics doesn't think having them in bouncer is useful, but I suspect I'm just missing something here. Given that, sounds like we need to go ahead and put both stub on full installers for Nightly and Aurora in bouncer.

If we're at the point in the process where we just need to change RelEng documentation on release days, I'd prefer that (even though this isn't a requirement for stub installer).

We already have the logic in the bedrock download buttons and it would be nice to add Aurora and Nightly in too. The way that it is set up now is that all we have to do is place a button instance on a template, say what channels, and all the other logic is included. We will still need to make sure that product-details is up to date.

John, these are wanted for WebDev/Marketing reasons - not Metrics ones. Cmore or Alex might be able to clarify better.
Having nighty and aurora will be helpful and will make our lives easier on mozilla.org since we can standardize all channel buttons to consistent logic. This will help reduce regressions and make QA easier.
I created a firefox-aurora-stub product + location, set to be SSL only: https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-aurora-stub&os=win&lang=en-US

This will 404 until stub installer lands on Aurora.

I'm told Nightly isn't a blocker so I didn't create it.
