unrelated downtime

Filed under
Site News

Well, just as I posted the "all is well" blog entry, we suffered a power outage here.

Thunderbird to be separated from Mozilla

This is a long-ish message. It covers general topics about Thunderbird and the future, and also the topics of the Foundation involvement (point 9) and the question of merging repositories (point 11). Naturally, I believe it’s worth the time to read through the end. Read more
