Non-blocking followups include:

Bug 1250603 - update "WebappRT" comments or remove app restrictions on components
Bug 1252648 - remove obsolete MochitestServer.testPrefix property

Unsure how best to track those, as they don't block completion of this project.

Ongoing work without a bug reference includes:

* transation of the SUMO article about the removal of the desktop runtime <>;
* removal of the Desktop Runtime module <>, as I proposed in this mozilla-governance thread <!topic/mozilla.governance/5oaEoMQbCDk>.
I'm also following up with Emma Humphries about moving the Firefox::Webapp Runtime component to the Graveyard product.

Bug 1243434 appears to be done, even though it hasn't been resolved yet.  In any case, it doesn't really block the disabling and removal of the desktop and Android runtimes, given that we've already disabled and removed them.  So I'm going to resolve this tracking bug.  This project is completed!
