As per title, this should be done once we stop accepting crash reports.

Is there a list of locations for this somewhere? I dunno how this scraping works but I'm not sure if it's even worth taking over to be honest.

It's done in these scripts which I run every day on my own but which I haven't ported to TaskCluster yet. In my experience this is useful to debug Linux issues so if you've stood up your own symbol server you might want to do something similar.

Thanks for the link! We hadn't really discussed the symbol server previously. We currently handle uploading of symbols for shippable builds ourselves(via Taskcluster). I don't think there is any good reason to stand up our own symbol server? It seems logical to continue using the Mozilla one, as it doesn't seem like hosting Thunderbird symbols would create any additional work.

If there are any scripts like the above that you or willkg don't want to run anymore though I'm happy to take them over, and we may port them to Taskcluster ourselves.

Yes, that's the most logical approach! I thought that since you were moving away from Socorro then you would also use a different symbol server but since this is not the case this bug is moot, I'll just close it because it costs us nothing to keep scraping Thunderbird Linux distro-specific builds.
