Just to make it clear to everyone following and to avoid spreading false 
rumors, there are no plans on doing a fork, and AFAIK exactly nobody 
from the tb core team thinks that's a viable plan going forwards. What 
may and will happen is that some parts dropped from mozilla-central will 
move to comm-central if there are no good alternatives for us. Please 
understand that this is a very different thing from a fork.
