Thunderbird 3.1 string freeze has been postponed

The string freeze for Thunderbird 3.1, which was originally planned for yesterday, has been postponed for a few days. I can't say for how many right now, but I will post here as soon as I learn more.

We're still waiting for a few important fixes, mainly the migration assistant and a new quick search. We'll need to solicit feedback on those patches before we can move further towards the Lanikai 3.1 beta2 release (Lanikai is the codename for the Thunderbird 3.1 series).

Attention localizers: Please move your Thunderbird localization to the l10n-mozilla-1.9.2 repository

From looking at the Thunderbird 3.1 dashboard it looks like a lot of localizations (13) that were part of the Thunderbird 3.0 release still need to move their existing localization over from their 1.9.1 l10n repository to their 1.9.2 l10n repository.

Right now the amount of changes between Thunderbird 3.0 and the current Thunderbird 3.1 builds are pretty small. Just moving an existing TB3 localization over to the 1.9.2 repo means that the dashboard will report 19 missing strings and 5 obsolete strings.

So with very little effort localizers can get their locale green again.
