Bug 434289 is working on setting up L10N builds for mozilla-central. I'm going to track the work that we need to do on Thunderbird here.

Some of this will be tracking what Robert is doing for SeaMonkey in bug 446119.

[checked in] Fix paths in mail/locales/

This patch does what Robert did for SM in bug 446119 - corrects some paths in the locales so that "make langpack-ab-CD" (with other appropriate set up) will work correctly in comm-central.

As we are releasing l10n builds with alpha 2, we definitely need to be able to do so again with beta 1.

Got the first successful l10n build up on :

More should trickle in as l10n repos are changing, and the real churn will be tonight, after the nightlies. I'll wait and see how that goes.
So we've had some more popup overnight. What I've just realised is that they are going into:

and not:

which was the original location, is there any way we could fix that? There we're keeping things in the same structure.

latest-trunk* should not be used any more for uploading, but it should be easy to make it latest-comm-central-l10n and symlink latest-trunk-l10n to it (AFAIK, this is what FF does).
gozer, this would mean changing self.mainBranch to self.localesBranch in the MozillaStageUpload step of

I did make the upload fo to latest-comm-central as SeaMonkey always had them in latest-trunk and I don't really know why L10n files should be treated so differently and go into a separate directory when they are equal in what code the contain and are equal in releases. I think though that whatever way we go, we should be consistent at least between SeaMonkey and Thunderbird as to how we treat that.

We have now localized builds in quite a few locales:

The other ones are failing because they have not yet adjusted to the change in bug 450257.

Apart from that, it's now working as expected.
