The above means that all URLs pointing to releases.mozilla.org for SeaMonkey must be redirected to ftp.mozilla.org. I have already identified the following:
- All langpacks at http://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases/#langpacks
- All URLs for Linux64 at http://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases/#contrib

I haven't checked the links found on the pages for beta and older releases but I suspect they too must be edited.

I'm setting the Severity to major because as long as those links aren't fixed they'll give Error 404 or the equivalent.
Attached patch disabling patchSplinter Review
Just in case this needs to be reverted (and to know how) I've disabled releases.mozilla.org instead of removing/replacing it.

VERIFIED by checking the langpack & L64 links on the "All Platforms and Languages" pages for the 2.17.1 and 2.18b4 releases, plus a random selection of older releases.

Feel free to REOPEN with details (or maybe open a followup bug) if "wrong" links are still found at places I didn't check.

Turns out I broke (at least) seamonkey_versions.json which I didn't even know existed. The cause was in config.tmpl which is structured a bit differently than release.tmpl, requiring the first of the two commenting techniques explained on <http://www.template-toolkit.org/docs/manual/Syntax.html#section_Comments>. Funnily I could probably have avoided all this if I had removed the download_allfiles part completely since it seems it's not used anymore (but I'm not sure).


use comments according to Template Toolkit rules
