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.

Is there a better way to migrate changes than simple copy commands? I wish I could save the changes history at the same time...

Sorry, I don't know of any way other than simple copy commands. You could ask in the #hg channel on IRC though. Maybe the hg experts know more about this than I do.
