forums-test.mozillazine.org was used back in 2008 to test the forum move from phpBB 2 to phpBB 3 and the actual test forum then was actually boards.mozillazine.org

Occasionally some people for whatever reason come here and post with forums-test.mozillazine.org instead of the proper http://forums.mozillazine.org and as a result you may get a email from test link instead.

One or more people in that thread looks to be using forums-test.mozillazine.org

Board sent me email pointing to wrong domain

Received this topic reply notification from mozillaZine forums, but the links all pointed to what looks like a different subdomain of mozillazine.org (see below)...
I clicked the link before I realized it was different domain, and I was presented with what looked like the usual login page, but I didn't actually log in to that site.

What is that "forums-test" subdomain, and is this just a glitch or something serious?

(This is the only notification I have received for that specific post.)
