The https update.rdf is very helpful. Much more convenient than dealing with
McCoy every release. Thanks.
Now if only I didn't need to make versions for Mozdev and AMO. One with the
update.rdf link and one without.
I wish amo would just remove the update.rdf link without complaining, but I
know that's not your problem.
