 previous comment and figure out what we need to do on our side to get
 hardened users properly onto the alpha channel?
 > Yes, I think I can do that.
 > What they did was create a mar file that only updates the `update-
 settings.ini` and `defaults/pref/channel-prefs.js` files to switch them to
 the esr channel. So the update to the next version is done in two steps.
 > I think we can do the same. After being switched to the alpha channel,
 hardened users will get an error with the incremental update (as we can't
 differentiate users of the alpha and hardened versions at that point, and
 the incremental mar files will only apply to the alpha version), but full
 update should work.
 > I will make a mar file for this to try it.

 How did the test go? Are we ready for that?
