Description

In order to achieve watershed for the ESR60 switch, we should redirect pre-8.0 stable users to a separate update directory, using the option added in #26234, so that they are updated to 8.0 first before being updated to the latest version.

This ticket is similar to #26569, but for the release channel.

We should do this after 8.0 has been released.

I made a patch for that in branch bug_26570:
https://gitweb.torproject.org/user/boklm/tor-browser-build.git/commit/?h=bug_26570&id=018a2e972bb8963ee3250e7b4926fda46b3c8577

We will need to merge it to the maint-8.0 branch after 8.0 is released. We will also need to copy the directory update_3/release to update_pre8.0/release.

Replying to boklm:

We will need to merge it to the maint-8.0 branch after 8.0 is released.

This should be merged in the master branch too (to have it in the 8.5 release).

I made a copy of the 8.0 update files to https://aus1.torproject.org/torbrowser/update_pre8.0/release/.

The patch from branch bug_26570 can now be merged after review.
