Description

5 years ago
One of the eyeball checks we do when reviewing releases on ship it is to compare the previous release's l10n changesets to the current release's l10n changesets. Generally we're looking for two things:
1) locales being added or removed
2) platform changes in mobile

These aren't necessarily errors, but they're something that should be noted to the user, I think. This could be calculated server side during a GET to /releases.html and shown on the page somewhere.

The trick is figuring out "previous release"...I don't think there's a way to do that yet.

I think this would be useful.

Not yet but seems like we might have enough data after bug 826753 is resolved. (Not sure. We still may need to tell ship-it what actually shipped.)
