Hi All,

As you may have seen from the weekly status meeting minutes, we are 
currently working on moving the Thunderbird builders and release 
automation over to the same architecture as the Firefox automation.

The new automation has been running to alternate locations, and we're 
now at the stage where we are getting close to being able to do the 
actual switch-overs.

At the moment we're expecting to move try server builds tomorrow, 
followed by the main branches later in the week or early next week.

Therefore, expect some downtime and closure of the try server tomorrow, 
probably around 07:00 - 13:00 EDT. This will be to change the try server 
builds. Due to the way the automation has been working, we've not been 
able to verify fully that unit tests are passing yet, therefore the try 
downtime might take a bit longer than planned if we get into unexpected 

We'll get more information about tree closures out as we get closer to 
them happening.
