[blue sky] move migration code work out from mozilla/profile and into applications (like mozilla/mailnews) I'm sure we all would like to see the day that our other bugs are fixed and we could get to this. but still worth putting in bugzilla. alecf writes: "Really I think the whole upgrader service needs a hook to allow plugged-in applications like mail to do their own upgrading...i.e. all the code to copy over .na2 files should be in the mozilla or possibly even the commercial tree...might I suggest a category-based approach where the upgrader instantiates all members of a category and calls them on some well known interface?" ccarlen writes: "I like the idea of breaking up migration to where it's needed. As Alec suggested, use category manager to instantiate the interested parties, and then QI to an API which allowed a 2-phase approach: (1) compute needed data size, and (2) migrate it."

you may call this blue sky, but I call it footprint work for phoenix.. phoenix shouldn't have to migrate mail stuff..
sorry for the spam. making bugzilla reflect reality as I'm not working on these bugs. filter on FOOBARCHEESE to remove these in bulk.

AFAIK Thunderbird and SeaMonkey have no application specific migration routines in the mozilla-central profile/ directory. Therefore this bug (as best as I can work out from it) needs nothing doing.
