On Wednesday, October 8, as part of mozilla.org's transition to the
Mozilla Foundation, the mozilla.org download site ftp.mozilla.org will
move to a new network of mirror servers. When that happens, the
directory structure of the FTP download site (ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/)
will change to integrate with the structure on the mirrors, which also
host other projects.

Every directory currently located under the /pub directory will be moved
to /pub/mozilla.org. For example,
ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly will move to
ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mozilla/nightly.

This change will break existing FTP links, which will need to be updated
to point to the new locations of the resources. Note that the structure
of the HTTP version of the download site (http://ftp.mozilla.org/) will
not change, and *http:// links do not need to be updated.*

To test these changes, we've set up a new domain name pointing to the
new servers, ftp-new.mozilla.org. Please use this domain name as much
as possible in the next week via the following links:

ftp://ftp-new.mozilla.org/
http://ftp-new.mozilla.org/
