The autoconfig entry in gaia was originally added as a latency thing and is an exact copy of the hosted ISPDB entry.  We've overhauled the autoconfig process to be much faster now (as of v2.1) so that reason for including it locally is no longer relevant.  Since the email server is going to transition soon, shipping it locally also limits transition possibilities.  Specifically, Mozilla IT can improve things by hosting an autoconfig server, but only if we lose the local entry.

Patch coming imminently (need bug number).
I propose not requesting uplift since the form is a hassle and by effectively compelling people onto v2.2 we can make sure that they're also getting any gmail enhancements we make (like addressing the delete/archive bug.)

no longer host the entry locally; we'll get it from the ISPDB instead.

Looks fine. As far as asking for uplift, it seems more of an issue of what release people are more likely to use when the email system changes. If the issue is that configuring will not work and 2.1 is the active release, then I would tend towards asking for uplift, just to avoid hassle about having to inform people of needing the manual config and communicating those prefs. Some messaging is likely either way though, in particular for accounts already configured.

landed in gaia/master:

verification: if anyone wants to validate, you just make sure you can still create a account with a build with this fix via autoconfig.  The account in question must also be hosted on the Mozilla Zimbra server.
