 Ah, yes, indeed.

 > For the next release, we need to make sure we ship a new HTTPS-E
 extension (e.g., version 5.1.7 assuming it exists) or we need to omit the
 incremental MARs.


 > My recommendation for 6.0a5 is to add this to the known issues list on
 the blog and tell people to install HTTPS-E 5.1.6 from https://www.eff.org
 /https-everywhere (we don't want them to install the one from
 addons.mozilla.org since the extension ID is different).

 Done. commit e51823989e0f57328f6b710e599ed3b564ac0c37 has the fix.
