These NSPR and NSS upgrades are driven by the bugs listed in the dependency list, which are under embargo.

We intend to land these patches into public NSS repository on October 15, and immediately afterwards into mozilla-inbound/central, for initial testing using the Firefox test automation.

We should be ready to land release candidates of NSPR/NSS into the Firefox branch on October 16, and if it works fine, declare the final NSPR/NSS releases and land them into the Firefox branch by October 19.

We're trying to land these patches as late as possible, but because you'll need time for Firefox release preparation, and testing of final Firefox builds, we're planning to do so two weeks prior to the scheduled November 3rd release date.

Please let me know if this plan doesn't work for you.
