This check hasn't caught a real error in a long time, but it's often caused headaches when trying to start releases because we've forgotten to disable it. Is it worth the trouble?
Rail and I just talked about this and realized that most of our pain around this check is because it defaults to on, which causes problems for all final releases and esrs. I pushed a change to invert that. This, along with bug 847424 should make the check less painful without disabling it completely. http://git.mozilla.org/?p=build/release-kickoff.git;a=commitdiff;h=7467f6d416c3174c0fc76886a790bdf187ded715 Still need to get this change deployed to production.
