These are big questions. But I need to put off commenting for now, but 
perhaps we can come back to them in a month.

I (and I expect others) are currently focused on two questions, the 
first more urgent and the second bigger:

1) Can I finish my critical core patches in time to make it into TB 17 
ESR? This I am doing quietly, fighting core bustages that seem to occur 

2) What will be the format and structure of the future Thunderbird 

I hope to begin posting some possibilities for this in the near future, 
and I hope we continue to hear more official work from Mozilla and 
current Thunderbird staff about their thoughts on this.
