Recently releng discovered that our largest spending in AWS, at least for build related jobs, are coming from perma-failing Thunderbird nightly repacks.

Unless there are compelling reasons not to, on Monday, Sept 18th, we will proceed with disabling all but a few busted jobs. Once the remaining jobs running are green again, we can start re-enabling all locales.

The goal here is to avoid spending extra money on things that are perma-busted rather than to hinder your ability to debug and fix.

=====

The technical details of this work will be to greatly reduce the number of locales we will attempt to repack, we can back that out once the jobs are fixed.
This would only affect the locales lists in buildbot-configs, right?

Correct this would be the all-locales.comm-central file which is used:  https://dxr.mozilla.org/build-central/source/buildbot-configs/mozilla/thunderbird_config.py?q=comm-central+all-locales&redirect_type=single#738 --> https://dxr.mozilla.org/build-central/source/buildbotcustom/l10n.py#92
