When Beta channels are deleted soon, the announced migration plan would see all users be migrated to the stable AMO channel.
I (and probably all users of Beta channels) would instead like to remain on some equivalent pre-release channel after this change is deployed.
Will the following migration plan work for my add-on?
- I self-host an update.json manifest
- I create a new build with an
update_urlproperty in the manifest to point to that update.json manifest file
- I publish this new build to the AMO beta channel before it is shutdown
- Beta channel users get upgraded to the next beta version when I add a new version to update.json
If not, what is the suggested approach to ensure addon users experience a seamless transition?
