Extension of the week
TorBirdy https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/torbirdy/ - configures Thunderbird to make connections over the Tor anonymity network.
Test scripts have migrated to Moztrap, but we are still adapting our workflows to the new environment.
A new contributor spoke up interested in working on engagement, but then stopped responding. We are still looking for volunteers to help with marketing.

Support and Documentation
(SUMO offsite in San Francisco last week)
- Please help us test TB 17 beta. It's our long term release for a year so we'd like its quality to be high and therefore we need to test it now with your add-ons, anti-virus and POP. Also TB17 beta fixes the spellcheck bug in TB 16, bug 790475

- See this week's Support Appendix for full Get Satisfaction metrics and other support details
See the Mozilla Status Board for status updates specific to developers.
There was general discussion around whether there was person or group with specific responsibility for things like making sure our marketing position is filled; there was no real conclusion during the meeting.
A question was raised about how the release cycle will work after 17.0 - will we need any new repositories or changes to build automation? Irving suggested that Mark is likely the person who knows.
