Good news - *please do not push live for 4-6 weeks*, rather roll out the ESR update 
much later, just  like last year. We need to do a ton of rewriting and testing for our 
legacy Add-ons to become compatible as "web experiments".

I am hoping to hire someone from the Thunderbird circle to help with primary 
conversion tasks, as I am too busy to do it myself. If you want to earn some extra 
money with Add-on conversion please hit me up off list.

> We plan to do one more 78 beta, 78.0b4, in the next few days. And 79 beta will be
