Create & Ship the l10n milestone
Followed the documentation instructions to create & ship it.
Update configs, reconfig, start automation
Used Release Kickoff/Runner to do all of this. It failed at first because bug 811267 modified the config directly rather than just the template. After that was fixed up, release runner worked fine.
Push to beta channel
# tbirdbld@aus3-staging cd /opt/aus2/snippets/staging ~/bin/pushsnip Thunderbird-17.0b3-build1
Run post release builder
