Enough is enough

I’ve ditched Ubuntu’s version of Thunderbird and using the version from Mozilla now. For some mysterious reason on Ubuntu occasionally forgets that I have a calendar and puts out numerous error messages concerning Lightning addon. Mozilla’s version doesn’t do that even if I use the exact same profile folder. Might give it another try when Ubuntu packages next version.

cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs-mirror.mozilla.org:/cvsroot co -r MOZILLA_1_8_BRANCH mozilla/client.mk
cd mozilla
make -f client.mk checkout

It’s also good to check tinderboxes of locales!
