Note that we have no concrete timeline for this yet.
API 14 has ~0 users, so let's just drop 14, too.
What release are we targeting actually dropping support for Gingerbread? 48, right?
yes, 47 notification, 48 EOL
Richard or Nick, no rush here, but can one of you own writing the patch for this for 48?
Sure. Note that most of the work is in stopping the build jobs, removing Gingerbread versions from FTP and the website, etc.; in-tree stuff has to wait for that, and is mostly going to be a bunch of `hg rm` calls.
rnewman is the expert here :) I can be backup.

There are important consumers that need to co-ordinate here: releng (jlund?) needs to remove (or disable, and then remove) the consuming jobs; the update/Balrog team needs to decommission the endpoints or whatever; and the ateam (gbrown!) needs to start filing tickets to remove the API <= 14 support code in the tree. Onward!

Barbara, just to give you an update - there are only a few outstanding blockers (bug 1250999 - stop building/testing, bug 1245567 - remove download links/builds), and then lots of little code cleanup (where there are some assignees/mentees, but I've pinged on some bugs where there hasn't been any movement). So this is effectively done, except for removing code that we don't need anymore.
Ok, thanks Chenxia, so I will still leave the Aha card "in development" and let you tell me once the blocking bugs are fixed.
Barbara: Gingerbread is dead! We just have cleanup to do, to remove useless code from our apk (to make it smaller). There are some mentees involved in these bugs, but they're not feature-critical.
Thanks, I changed the status to "ready to ship"
