Excellent! I have been anxiously watching all of your patches receive r+ and land.
While we're waiting, can we generate some try builds with the feature on to get a bit wider testing before flipping the switch for everyone?

Lawrence: Bug 701178 looks almost done, but I noticed that it just adds links to http://www.mozilla.org/legal/privacy/firefox.html, which hasn't been updated to mention this AFAICT. Is there a separate bug tracking that?
The Telemetry section of the privacy policy (Usage Statistics) was updated in the last push. I think you're referring to the line "...Firefox includes functionality that is turned off by default...", which does look like it needs to be updated. Please let me know if I have correctly identified your concern.

Jishnu - Can you comment on if the privacy policy needs to be updated before Telemetry is enabled by default on Nightly and Aurora? If so, can you push a small update to cover this change?

Yes, that's what I was referring to.

Yep, https://tbpl.mozilla.org/?tree=Try&rev=9f20f0702c04
The Firefox privacy policy has been updated (bug 822523). We're clear to pref on Telemetry enabled-by-default on Aurora and Nightly.

Gavin - Can you provide the review for Theo's patch and get the change landed on MC?
Depends on: 822523
The correct bug for the privacy policy update is bug 823259.
Depends on: 823259
No longer depends on: 822523

That's good news, Lawrence, thanks.

I updated https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/send-performance-data-improve-firefox (Still needs to be reviewed)
I added the text you created last year, updated the string to match the current opt-in string and added Linux screenshots.
(I hope that's fine, because it's my first SUMO contribution)

Also added your string here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-can-i-help-submitting-mobile-performance-data 

"Telemetry is an opt-out feature on the Firefox Aurora and Firefox Nightly developer channels. This means that Firefox will collect and send this information to Mozilla by default."

idle-daily submissions more than doubled in Nightly, but only starting with the January 5 build. Maybe because of holidays?

Aurora submissions stayed the same, but that's because we didn't uplift, so it might take a few more days for any change to register:

I think your holiday explanation is a good one. This change didn't land until Dec. 22.

Yes. We should check back on Aurora next week.
