Hi all,

Mozilla's automation and tools team (the a-team) are working on some 
changes to automation that lives in mozilla-central to make it more 
maintainable.  See!topic/ 
for a more thorough description of what we're doing.

One of our first tasks involves changes to, so this is 
a heads up to the Thunderbird community in case any Thunderbird 
automation relies on that file.  As far as I can tell, it doesn't, but I 
could be wrong.

We will soon be changing that file to depend on mozbase packages 
(, so if any your automation uses 
that file, it would need to be changed to provide access to those packages.

We will make additional posts to about this topic 
as needed; do members of the Thunderbird community who are involved in 
Thunderbird test automation monitor that newsgroup?

If you have any questions, please pop into #ateam and ask jgriffin, 
jhammel, or ahal.
