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
> 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.

David - is this something you want to email people about?  If so, would you write the message?

I never did this, and we already removed. Do we still have to do this?

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