Meta bug for tracking 6.1

TB 59 goes to beta (= string freeze) at 2018-01-15.

I'm not carrying over any not fixed leftover blocking bug 1312113 automatically - this should be subject to an individual evaluation (to whether it is both, wanted and a reasonable target).

If you make bugs block this meta bug, which need string changes, please add [has l10n impact] to the whiteboard of these bugs, so we could track all blocking bugs required until string freeze by this query:

The next ESR version has been changed from 59 to 60, so we need to track changes for 6.2 here.

Any news concerning this new version? Thunderbird is update now on many platforms (60), and lightning doesn't work anymore :(
@jonathanmm: I agree it is insane, having Lightning unreleased when TB got already autoupdated on major platforms!

So far, I'm using with just one bug - the Google Calendar provider always asks me for new 2FA login on each startup.

@[:MakeMyDay]: I see there are still some unresolved bugs this one depends on, but none of them really seems to be a blocker for releasing "at least something". Or am I wrong?
Lightning 6.2 has been released with TB60 back in August. That it's not on ATN (fomerly AMO) is tracked in bug 1484532, which lists also possible workarounds. It is _not_ recommended to use beta version mentioned in comment 8, since it still has a lot of subsequently fixed bugs. If you need a more detailed receipe to extract Lightning from the TB pacakge, see bug 1074268.

That you seem to have no (localized) Lightning compatible to TB60 this is a packaging issue of your Linux distribution of choice, since the official packages at [1] includes a localized Lightning (since TB38). Also that you received an autoupdate is driven by your distribution - we have no control about that.

The remaining not resolved bugs were blocker candidates but didn't effectively block the release. Maybe we still can backport fixes for that once landed throughout the ESR60 life cycle.

I'm going to close this bug now since 6.2 has been released, but leave the blockers as is, since they are uplift candidates as mentioned before.

@[:MakeMyDay] Thanks for pointing in the right direction, I haven't found that bug.
