- Tree status issues: https://thunderbird.etherpad.mozilla.org/tree-status
- General fragility / poor condition of beta and nightly tree buildability - hurts testing, puts beta users at security risk, results in landings in clumps hurting QA and regression hunting ^^ (Even though we have great people working on these issues .. do we need more??)
Leave critical bugs here until confirmed fixed. If confirmed, then remove.
