We need to prepare and send a message to developers notifying them that app summaries are being removed (descriptions will remain). Something like: > We want to let you know that we're making changes to the Firefox Marketplace. > The "summary" field for apps is going to be removed. For many apps, this does > not require any action on your part, and summaries will be merged into the > description field automatically. However for some apps--especially those with > partial or incomplete translations--this merge process may result in > undesired changes. For technical details on the merge, please see > https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=862603#c9 > > This change will take place in the coming week. > > We encourage you to review the new descriptions for your apps in all locales > to ensure that they are complete and accurate once the change has occurred. We should send this message shortly before the changes in bug 862603 land in production.
This requires a few lines to https://github.com/mozilla/zamboni/blob/master/apps/zadmin/views.py#L624 Wil, can you get a poor soul to write this today before our push tomorrow?

David - is this something you want to email people about? If so, would you write the message?
I like Basta's message.
cvan: can you do whatever lines we need to target the devs and then we'll make up a message and send it tomorrow

We should still notify them so they can proofread and make sure they haven't gotten their descriptions mangled.
