As of tonight, I CLOSED comm-central for the comm-2.0 branch setup for 

For those who do not know, comm-2.0 is intended to be built with Gecko 
2.0 for the upcoming SeaMonkey 2.1 release. Thunderbird/Calendar have 
decided not to do a release based on Gecko 2.0 and instead will base 
their next release on Gecko 5.0.

Since SeaMonkey is the only ones following Gecko2, and since our release 
date is nearing, we have decided to branch comm-central now to avoid 
further potential traps and issues.

* The comm-2.0 repo will be open for landings as early as tomorrow.
* Tonights nightly for comm-2.0 builds will be based off the 
|| repository.
* comm-central (for suite/) will remain CLOSED until comm-2.0 is also open.
* When both repo's reopen, SeaMonkey development will still be focused 
on SeaMonkey2.1 and all patches will need to double-land (see below)
* comm-2.0 will remain l10n frozen, and comm-central will be free to 
take l10n updates for seamonkey when the trees reopen.

We need to really narrow in on SeaMonkey2.1-final and get this release 
out the door, Firefox 4.0.1 is imminent, and likely to be the final .x 
release off mozilla-2.0

There are still some minor bugs to fix for the comm-2.0 setup, but none 
of them should drastically affect our plan.

See Bug 646804 for details.

questions there.
