  1. 581 new support topics (my guess: higher count is due to Firefox 4 "knock-on" effect) - Media:11-17April2011-Community_stats_for_Mozilla_Messaging.png
  2. Kitsune KB migration: [Project Plan] Because of Easter and web-dev being away and localizations not being complete, we are moving the launch back to April 27, 2011.
  3. 3.1 Support Issues
  4. At Mozilla All Hands, discussed the effect on TB Support if TB decides to get on the Firefox rapid release platform train (SUMO support plan for Firefox release plan; we'll need something similar if TB goes for rapid release)
